I always seem to get enclosed by territory and lose by a greater margin than I predict. I wonder what went wrong in this match and how I could have won. No complex variations please, concepts and strategy would be more helpful, or really critical specific moves.
Playing the game will help you learn from others. So play as many games as you can.
Dont be afraid of the bigger boards!
Many people stard on the smaller boards, which is fantastic because it serves as a great learning toll, as well as offering games that dont last so long or whatever else. But, many people become intimidated by the larger boards and stop themselvs from advancing their skills in the game.
The larger boards offer dfferent stuational issues as well as “Global” or “Board wide” problems. So jump in to them, dont be afraid, and ask for help on the larger boards if you need it!
Go problems are a great way to learn some great moves, and indeed it helps to improve your dreading and counting as well.
Use all the resourses available to you.
OGS has a go resourses thread. Go find it, and use the things that work for you, but give everything a go. and experiment.
Lastly. And i know this sounds corny, and terrible. But its damned true… Have fun. the moment you stop having fun, is the moment the game dies for you, so dont be harsh on yourself if you lose a game of ten, and carry on playing, not just to win, but for the simple pleasure of the game.
