is a soft move. White is settled immediatly with a perfect 3-space extension.

Also notice that the black corner might seem big, but it is still open for invasions.

is in fact a good move when black already has a supporting stone on the side. In that case can put pressure on white. White is not able to make his 3 point extension. It is harder for white to make shape. His position is less confident.

But if there is no such supporting stone, then it is a mistake.
