Two step pincer

We coined this very far pincer the "Two step pincer". It is interesting to see how baduk evolves and innovates. Try this far pincer to surprise your opponent!

What if white played Q16 after black R10? If B-R17, W-P16 and black seems to get a low position at the top, or did I miss something?

Carmelo, I think this is similar to the variation we showed when white plays P16 after R10. White has no nice extension and can also not easily attack the pincer stone at R10.

The black formation after black R10 is like in the Chinese Fuseki. We know that invading at R15 (or anywhere around) is bad against the Chinese Fuseki. But your video shows that it is actually so bad that black can actually tenuki when white invades and still have a perfectly playable position, right ? Very interesting.
