Manchurian Fuseki

Manchurian Fuseki

Manchurian fuseki is one of the Chinese fuseki variant. Manchurian fuseki is shown by the diagram below.

You can find about Manchurian fuseki in sensei’s too, but here I want to say what Ithink about this fuseki.

Just as Chinese fuseki do, Manchurian Fuseki also aiming to build a big moyo. The marked stone is used to create influence outside.
In my opinion, white can’t play the komoku, because it’ll give black what it wants

I don’t know whether this fuseki is ever been played at pro tournament or not, but right now I love to play this fuseki.

Please share your experience using this fuseki ^^
