osoraku Hello!

I love the Kobayashi opening lectures 1 to 5! After watching them, I always get excited to try it in my games! But many times, my opponent does not cooperate. When I have black, my games often start out like this:

After I approach the bottom-left corner with black 5, my opponent...
(1) Plays a pincer to prevent the kobayashi formation
(2) Ignores my approach move and plays a high approach move in the bottom right corner

Maybe they don't like the kobayashi opening as much as I do...! Anyway, I think I can win more games if I study these 2 patterns. Does anyone have any advice for me?
