The next theorem gives the fundamental groups of R-join-type sextics according to their component types.
In [2], we found an example of two R-join-type sextics, C and C', both with 11 nodes and with exponents 2, 2, 2; 2, 2, 2), such that [[pi].

This is an analog case of Zariski's sextic with 9A2 which is the dual of a smooth cubic.
It is well-known that the dual of a (generic) smooth cubic is a sextic with exactly 9[A.
Many Zariski pairs of sextics were given in [10-12], most of them appear as a (2, 3) torus curve and a non (2, 3) torus curve.
