9/3/2010 11:27 PM, jerome in the box: Black leads by 21 Pips. If he can clear from behind, it will for white even harder to take a double. Leaving a blot on the 18 point sacrifies 7 pips, leaving a blot on the 4 point sacrifies 21 points, if he is hit. Clearing from behind generates, when not hit a simple holding game position structure for black, but with an anchor on the 2point for white. The play is efficient, because it sacrifies a little, to reach a strong position. It works, when not hit, for further connectivity and it creates new spares to move on and to build safely on the front position. Black leads the race. He needs not a holding game, he has to disengage. White is outboarded 2:1, so that adds also up. And Black has time to make additionol inner bord points naturally, without slotting.
