Requesting a review of this game. Didnt do too well, any advice is helpful. Thanks
I would also like to know what general improvements I could make to move from 24kyu to teen kyu. I feel like Im stuck at the bottom right now, and just cant seem to dig myself out of the hole to at least to progress to the teen ddk range.
I had a look at the game, and what stands out is that you are missing some “basics” of 19x19 play.
When I finally managed to get to 20k, I wrote this: Your beginnings with Go?
I think you are up to bullets 4 & 5. You seem to know about corner-sides-centre, but aren’t yet spotting the “big” moves.
Dwyrin’s “Back to basics” youtube series is good for getting insight into how to think about where to play next - what is big, and what is urgent.
I put some notes on the game.
You have made some very critical suggestions. I think watching some of these video series will give me a boost in improvement. Thank you for the review as well, and I will definitely read the Your beginnings with Go thread. Im also considering ordering two books: In the Beginning and Opening Theory Made Easy. Hopefully they wont be too complex at my level.
FWIW, something I’ve found is that Dwyrin’s basics seem to trump “opening theory” at my beginner level. Whenever I learn a fuseki and try it out, I find that I don’t have the skills and experience to make it work.
Wheras just “playing solid basics” works well, it seems. And has the advantage that you don’t have to remember a pile of stuff!
Left a quick review in my sleep deprived state.
Thank you for taking the time to do the review _Thrawn
