More about jumps

This is called a Two Point Jump ( or Niken tobi).

Although it will give you wider influence over the board, it is more likely that the two stones will be cut by the enemy because they have a wider gap.

You also have Three Point Jumps and Four Point Jumps.
These large jumps are often used as the opening moves.

This jump is called Knight's move (Keima) as in chess.

Knight's moves are often used to claim corner territories as shown in the left.

This is called Kosumi - a diagonal move.

The two stones are virtually connected but it's a little slow because the extension from the first stone is smaller than the other we have looked at.
