Is The Risk Worth It?

I played a player who was higher in rank, but committed some pretty amateur mistakes in the game. So during the end-game, he had a group of stones that could be taken if he committed a mistake. I didn’t take that chance and lost by 4.5 points (I was black).
So I was wondering should I have taken a risk believing he would commit the mistake, or was I right in thinking that if I was him, I would save the group so I shouldn’t play further?

Could you post the link to the game

There’s no risk if the group is in his territory. If you could lose part of your territory by attacking his group, then you should analyze the risk. If you’re losing you have to take risks, most of the times


Sorry, but it was a real life game with a friend of mine…
