runski In one of the lectures Guo Juan mentioned this joseki is not good. Also many go books state this joseki is suitable for handicap games only. Is there a lecture that explains this topic further?

runski Darrel, thx. I watched the video. My take is that white gets about 6 points. Black has perhaps 8 to 10 points depending on how the corner is played out. But black ends in gote. In essence black plays an extra move and only gets a couple more points. If the joseki ends with white having a weak shape with many ajis, it may be worth playing. In this case white is very solid and there isn't much black can do.
