Here’s a game I recently played on KGS:
(I’m BaseSix, there, playing white in this game.)
I won, but mostly because of a huge, chaotic fight in the middle where my opponent made a few more mistakes than I did.
I’ve run the game through leela to pinpoint my bad moves, but I wouldn’t mind some human analysis, as well. What should I be focusing on to improve my game? My main feeling with this game is that I should to play more honte-ish moves. I unnecessarily lost the top right, and the top left was in serious danger because of some sloppy play up there.
I should also try to pay more attention to what forcing moves I have. I’ve had a few games where I’ve had solid forcing moves that at least give me more aji to work with, but end up playing elsewhere and losing the opportunity to play them. I’m a bit worried about aji-keshi when I play them out, but I think I’m being overly cautious about it, and losing my chance.
What else should I be focusing more on with my games?
