Often, one could witness this joseki of move “3” played by Beginners (8k or weaker). Then a beginner will then quickly answer the move “4” with “A”, then “B” exchange. leaving no aji to break through the territory of Black – which is so wrong.

Thus, White “A” is the fundamental mistake to this joseki!

This variation would be the simplest amongst the others. Black would later might go for “A” or “B” – depends.

It is definitely possible for Black “4” to move at “5” which is inferior. Strongly encourage beginners to try it out and experiment for a different result!
