That’s better said thanks, but still not really just what I tried to say, because it’s for the case too, when you know, but your opponent doesn’t and you just want to punish but it’s not that a drama because it’s just a matter of 1 point difference.

I mean be ashamed, lose your face, cry and shout all the bad words you know in English… each time you don’t have another idea as to connect.

Humiliated is maybe too strong.
How about: There is dishonour in connecting?

Every Proverb deserves a counterpart;

“Don’t be ashamed to connect, for it is honte.”

O sure. It’s just a few months ago, I got kind of enlightening by watching strong players games and how they really hate to connect. Well sure sometimes it’s just the honte move.

Just because you don’t know the joseki, doesn’t mean you can tenuki.
