Keima on the second line

This episode shows a strong keima move which is often overlooked in the fuseki. Try it sometime instead of more common alternatives. Level: 6k to 4d

Wow. That WAS an intense fight on the left site in one of the bonus games.

Great videos--as a suggestion maybe you could devote one of the episodes to ikkenshimari 2-2 probe? The one that if you understand it you're a 5 dan-)

Thanks for the suggestion Vd. Both Kim and me have no idea however which variation you mean. If you could send a sgf file to peter at would be much appreciated!

Sorry, i really made a mistake there but it's still easier to explain here-- on a standard KGS board black plays R16 and P16 -- a high enclosure and white plays a probe at 3-3 (in this case R17)

Thanks Vd, that makes sense. I didnt know there were so many difficult variations here. I always end up in the same variation when I play it. Will sure check it out!

Hi, on this video [] Alexander Dinerchtein analyses a game he played and the yoseki appears [around 3:46]. His opponent answered the keima on second line with a keima on second line [D16, C14, B15 and then E18]. Its a very interesting variation, I think.

Hmm. I've used this before and had an interesting time finding ways to make it work well. Thanks for the help.
