This pincer makes things very hard for white. A fight will follow.

The sequence above is the most often played sequence. Black peeps twice to make the white shape heavy. However black is unlikely to kill white's big group.

There has been experiments with other ways to jump out, in order to achieve a lighter shape. The following sequence has been seen. But shows there are some weaknesses in this shape as well.

The following way to play has been seen by Cho Hyeyeon in a game against Rui Naiwei. Attaching first is a good idea. White's shape is lighter now.

A lot of players have actually played combinations with attaching first. But there is not really a fixed line of play. Still it is the believe of our BruGo administrators that attaching first is a key for better shape.
