10k v. 9k Friendly Match, 30m MT 5x1m BY, 53 moves

Hello, it is my first time on this forum. I hope that my topic title is alright.

I am requesting a review for a recent game I had. I will not be around for a day or so; if you want to leave a review on the game when I am not around, that is alright. If you want to review with me, please message me and we can schedule a time that works for both of us. Below are some specific requests; you can touch on any number of them if any at all. I only ask that the whoever reviews my game plays at a higher level than I do.

Specific requests:

  1. I am only familiar with a few joseki, so if you’d like to play out more favorable variations on the board that would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Was move 13 acceptable?
  3. Is there a better move than move 21; is there a way for me to reduce the large lower left corner?
  4. Was move 23 too deep to live?
  5. Does move 43 effectively contain (and thereby kill) the leftside white group?

Thank you. I hope that this post meets the forum standard.

I answered all questions here. It’s such a short game there’s not much to say. You may find some comments interesting however.

Thank you mark5000. Your review is greatly appreciated.
