W. E 7 and Black has the advantage, because White's stones at C 7-E 7 can only get one “Me” on the edge of the board, and later on must seek a connection with some other group. By constantly harassing such endangered groups territory is often obtained.
12. C 5. White sees that Black plays too carefully, and therefore challenges him with a bold but premature attack that gives the whole game its character.

The moves 46-52 are part of a deeply thought-out plan on the part of White. Black could afford to ignore No. 4 as long as it stood alone. Thereupon White increases it by Nos. 48 and 50, and Black must accept the sacrifice, because otherwise Nos. 27-29 are threatened. By this sacrifice White
