Hello, I’m new to Go and have a few questions about this game. https://online-go.com/game/1415559

I’m playing black and think I’m doing okay at the start. I feel like moves 19, 21, and 31 were bad and at move 32 I believe that my group at the top is dead. However, I decide to fight it out and resign if I lose the battle hoping to learn a thing or two.

I’ve been through this game at least 10 times and I cannot for the life of me figure out how I managed to save that top group, eat his top-left corner, and take points on the left side while reducing his territory.

Thanks, CoC

Though usually, try to take games where you lose. You learn a lot more from knowing what exactly lost you the game.

Thank you so much for taking the time Midna! I really appreciate it.

I was a little worried about posting a win for review for that very reason and I hope I didn’t sound like I was bragging. The result of this game just baffled me so much that I had to know how it happened. I will remember in the future that losses have more to teach us than wins.

Thanks again =)
