Tenuki (term borrowed from Go) means a move made in a different area of the hex board than the last opponent's move.

The more stones are put in an area the less attractive this area becomes. Hence there always comes a point when it's better to play in a different area than to keep fighting for the same one.

Tenuki is highly underappreciated by less advanced players who tend to play locally for too long.
