Shusaku opening

Shusaku fuseki (秀策流布石) is a traditional fuseki for black stones in the game of Go. It was developed to perfection (but not invented) by Honinbo Shusaku.

With its variants, it constituted the basis of the major theories of fuseki for nearly a century, until the 1930s, at which point the introduction of komidashi and major innovations under the shinfuseki opening occurred.

The orthodox Shusaku fuseki is as follows:
