I recently played a casual game against Fuego after taking a ~3 month hiatus from Go and won fairly easily: https://online-go.com/game/8074656
I was hovering around 8-9k when I stopped playing frequently, so I fully expected to be a DDK when coming back. That said, I have been doing more Life/Death problems in my time off, and have watched the occasional go video, so it’s possible I have improved… I just wouldn’t expect a 5 stone jump…
I played a bit expirimentally (AlphaGo enclosure in the top left, overall much “Greedier” playstyle than I would normally use, more willing to tenuki with unsettled shapes, etc.) hoping that the “4k” might show me some interesting invasion techniques. Fuego also played several seemingly illogical moves (i.e. Move 24), not even counting the desperate endgame attempts.
Basically, I’m trying to determine whether Fuego was broken that day or if this new play style suits me😃 I’m also interested in any general comments you have about my game. Thanks!
