I just completed a game with an 18k (I was ranked 17k at the time). The game started with 4-4 points all around, where my opponent then played 3-3 (an invasion and a defensive move), which resulted in quite a few variations I’ve never seen before. I’m pretty sure I handled the entire thing poorly. The result was that I quite quickly lost a group of stones, and a cut worked that (probably) shouldn’t have. I’d appreciate any input on shape problems or mistakes I made as black in the first 50 or so moves, and input on the invasion that I failed to stop at move 158.
My review is here
Naturally, I’d appreciate any input on the other aspects of the game, but the beginning and the invasion were the sections that I felt very much like I was floundering at.
Thanks in advance!
