Interesting that William mentioned Q6 as an unusual move. I remember seeing it suggested by pros as a common reduction in this formation, including many known variations (I am looking at a printed version of those variations now). It seems it has been played in quite a few pro games as well. Could be he just meant it's the least used of the reductions there? Because it seems quite a usual move in this formation.

Move 24 works well with the shoulder hit at move 6. Also note black 7, answering with a territorial keima. View sgf Download sgf
