No point in doing a complete review, I am just curious what - in two words - I am doing basically wrong in this game? For one, I didn’t know how to defend against the attack on the left side. But for the rest, what am I missing?
FYI you forgot the link I’m assuming you meant this game against aquarelle, that you lost by 0.5?
If so, I’ve left a few comments on the game page with variations on how you ALMOST killed that invasion. If you killed that group, you win the game, so don’t be too discouraged you played well, just gotta slow down a bit and watch out for those moves you play on reflex and ask if there is a better way for this particular situation
If you meant a different game, please link it I’ll be happy to look over that one too.
BHydden, my man! Going the extra mile to search through their game records so that you could offer support? Sexy, sexy . You sir… are awesome !
I got a lot of help as a beginner (and still do), and truly believe in passing onto others for a while now I’ve been out of action with IRL stuff, but felt good being able to give a little back
Yes, you’re right that I forgot to put the link, I am sorry. And yes, that’s the game that I meant. And yes, I see now: B8 was the move I should have made. It looked like something that would be easy to cut, but that’s not true. Thank you
O wait, B8 was suggested by snakess. B5 is very clever too. Just changing the order of what I did, in a way. Very nice.
Specifically, changing the order in such a way that he can’t make his first eye in sente. By backing off just a little bit more in this instance, it frees you up to poke out his second eye instead of needing to defend your shape. Definitely still well played though
