GoQuest Go Help - Why did I lose?

Can someone tell me why white won in this game? I am new to this.

Well, what can I tell you, white has more points… :smiley:

My best guess would be that in your counting you failed to take into account “komi” which (according to what ruleset is used) is somewhere between 5-8 points. White gets this “boost” because black has the first move, which is a big advantage. Komi makes it so both players have approximately same chance to win.
