B 1 oki is a good move. (cont.)];W[gq]LB[gq:2]C[If W 2, (cont.)]

(;W[fr]LB[fr:4]C[W 4 (cont.)];B[iq]LB[hp:A][iq:5]C[and B plays tsuppari at 5.
After this "A" is a strong move and he has his 2 eyes above and below, so B can feel at ease.
A further important point is that the W group has not been strengthened.]

[fq:6]C[B 5 and W 6 the nozoki "A" is effective and since there is one eye on the side, B has done enough to live, but this way of playing leaves something to be desired.]
