Review Request 25k vs 23k (9x9)

Hello all,

Still fairly new at the game. Taking lessons from the Youtube personality “In Sente” and lectures from I was hoping for a review of one of my most recent games to see how I can refine myself better. If you could take the time to review my 9x9 game I’d appreciate all advice :slight_smile: (I’m black)

Hey I looked at your game and you played pretty well! the biggest mistake I saw was your 4th stone on B3. I tried some variation on the fight from there luckily white screwed up after that with his D3 move. If he would have played B5 your bottom left group would have died. I would say a general rule is to not double hane (move 4 on B3) unless you have some sort of support for that stone.

with that said I’m not the best player but I hope I was of some help. I would advise you to take a look at the variation where white plays B5 instead of D3 and see why the double haney you did doesn’t work out. Good Luck!

EDIT: I Forgot to link the review:


I left a quick review.

I would suggest YouTube lessons from Nick Sibicky, I use him and he seems well respected. While I’ve never actually used “In Sente”, I have heard that some of what he teaches is a little off from conventional wisdom. Though I could be wrong.

Anyways, let me know if you have any questions.

I’m only 20k, but I like to review just for learning.

Others provided lots of advice for later in the game.

I think that actually your 3rd move could have changed the game a lot if you made a bigger choice at that point.

I illustrated some possibilities.

As I said, I’m a beginner, so there might be nonsense in there, but there might be something useful as well :slight_smile:
