Playing near approach against Kobayashi

Is it still a consensus that far approach is best approaching the komoku stone for Kobayashi?

Because i’ve seen quite a few modern pro games where they just disregard that and play closer. Making the moyo a lot more manageable since black can’t shoulder hit the approach move. But this of course build the opposite side when the Kobayashi user pincers that near stone.

Anyone have any resources regarding this untraditional play? Like a video?

There is a pro game with some comments in this thread
