Hi there...I'm here to help

I see a lot of newer or lower level players coming into OGS, and I think that is wonderful.

I am putting this up here so that newer players can see this and post below.

I am a 9kyu player, so while I am not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, I know enough to be able to guide you lower level players.

Please, comment, or message me… I am happy to go over and make a review of some games for you, and point you in the right direction for some places to learn some stuff… and I’m more than happy to play a teaching game… both live and correspondence… though with the live games, you’re gonna have to be lucky to find me online at the same time, unless we arrange a time and day, but I prefer a more free-flowing way of doing things.

I am absolutely at your disposal to teach you the basics, and a bit more. And I’m free… so there is that also.


Bumping the thread so people can see I’m here to help.

Could you help me on this game ? When black invaded the upper right corner (move 51), I’ve lost it. Something I might have done to change the outcome ?

The key issue with that I see is that you left the monkey jump open in the first place. Even when it doesn’t kill you a move like N12 is pretty big, often being 8 or 9 points in sente (in this case 6 if it didn’t also kill) and in this case I think you need a bit more fancy footwork to keep the group alive using M12 instead of J13

No worries my dude. If you want me to take a look at other games, send me a message, or post a reply here, or send smoke signals or something. I’m pretty receptive XD. And as the title of the post says, I’m here to help!
