This is a common corner shape that all dan players should know by heart.
Black to play.
I learned this shape as a 4d while playing a real game. I was on the white side of it and got unpleasantly surprised!
It makes you wonder if you should descend to q18 at all as white, or if the hanging connection of r18 would be better. Apparently the difference between these is only about half a point!
