Hello! I’ve been playing and reading Go books for about 2 weeks, and would like to ask you for a review of this game. I felt I began quite well (as White), but I was clearly outplayed in the mid-game, and by the time I realised I was beaten (later than I’d have liked) and resigned, Black was up by 22.5 points.
Self-critique: I never invaded black’s territory, and presumably defended poorly when he invaded mine. But I felt I was starting to get some things right, connecting, trying to make eyes, and had a decent-size group which was alive at the end. I was able to think about where black would like to play next, and play there myself some of the time. But I was on the back foot the whole time.
What else would you observe? Any good points at all? Any beginner errors you can see?
