Here is a game where I felt better in the beginning, but as the game progressed I realized my opponent had very large chunks of territory that I failed to equal. I realized that I was very unsure about how to go about attacking these areas (or if it was even possible). Please look at my game and let me know what you think.

Here’s a review. You’ve got some creative move ideas, and you played a little above your rank if you ask me. My ideas for improvement are related to fighting spirit (especially in the opening) and avoiding overly conservative moves.

Thanks for taking the time to review my game, I really appreciate it! I think when I first started out I tried to start fights everywhere I could, and I realized that I couldn’t do that, but it seems I have gone too far in the opposite direction and I am now afraid to fight. I will try to count and fight when I should fight. Thanks again, your review is tremendously helpful!
