figure 1

The first thing to note in this position is that all black stones are high. High stones are useful for attack, but not quite useful for territory. So black should try to keep white's groups weak to enable the black handicap stones to do their work. Another application of high stones is to build up a large framework (moyo). This can be one of the things black could do while attacking white stones/groups.
This move could already be critizised, please see variation "Efficiency" for the reasoning.
