So I (16K) played Fuego(6K) bot and lost by 8.5 points. I reviewed the game and wrote down ideas I had during the early and middle game. Would someone be kind enough to review my thinking? I’m interested to know if the sorts of things I was thinking about and planning made sense.
Here’s the game with my comments.

a good game there! i hope could help a little. should there be any questions, dont hesitate
Thanks. I was surprised to see a recommendation to tenuki after a low knight approach to 4-4. I’ve never realised this could be a viable thing to do!
Yeah the bots have shown that the double approach of the 4-4 isn’t really that big of an issue, so if there is something big on the board they will often tenuki
I should clarify, the recommended tenukis were for the person who approached, as their next move, after the 4-4 owner backed off (move 15 and move 31)
oh right lol yes also possible sorry i didn’t actually open the game
Hi @kickaha, I just finished my first pass through your review of my game and my comments. It’s great! My skills are lacking in several areas, and you’ve provided me with plenty to think about and study. And I’ve got a bit more confidence that I’m on the right track too.
I’m glad you liked my plan to connect those distant stones. Reminds me of the best-laid plans of mice and men. And sadly, my lack of skills defending invasions was on full display. And you thought Fuego was surely dead.
Thanks again. I appreciate the time you spent and the insights provided.
