A thread for posting positions where there is a choice between a couple or a handful of moves, and discussing which option is better and why.
I figured this thread would allow for more dedicated discussion than QTDDTOT, since Questions That Don’t… also includes plenty of non Go-related content.
This thread is more like the Quick Questions area on Sensei’s Library.
I had this position at (26) in my last game – I think most people would agree that Black is a little better, but not with any runaway advantage.
Black has taken cash in the top right, whilst White is making influence.
- make the honte extension A,
- attempt the hane B,
- or ignore White and try to raise my top-side position with C?
In the game I played C, but I in the review I criticised it and suggested that I should’ve just played A. I didn’t seriously consider B, but I can’t say at a glance that it doesn’t work, for a given definition of the word.
