Whichever side Black descends on, White can connect to the other.

Interestingly. AI says that for the second one I could have played on the third line, but that seems much more complicated to defend.

From a recent game. Black missed the advantageous semeai, then white missed an oiotoshi, which ultimately resulted in this seki.

Note, ongoing game.
White has constructed an impeccable three tier dumpling shape

The best response to black 1 is apparently this move according to the AI. Because then white can save the 2 stones after the cut at A without the cut at B becoming a major issue. Just thought it was a funny shape.

Kata plays another B2 bomber:

Remember how we avoided early 3-3 invasions until the AI tought us? I bet now we’ll all start to aim for B2 bombers!

Here’s a previous post in which Kata played two B2 bombers (as the same colour) in one game!
