In this game between 5d players, Guo Juan covers a strategic understanding of a popular AI move against a corner enclosure. In addition to other tips, she also gives a great example from the game of an important principle that all amateurs should keep in mind on attacking, viz., you don’t necessarily have to kill a group to win – sometimes you can simply attack from the outside to win by territory.
