Review Request 3 Kyu vs 3 Kyu


#1

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum so I hope that I have set up this post correctly. Thank you in advance to anyone who takes a look!

While I feel like I have been improving overall recently, I keep running into situations where I seem to be getting efficient exchanges and taking a lot of profit, but then I am unable to reduce the influence of my opponent effectively.

In this game I only ended up winning because I accidentally killed a group on the top while trying to break into my opponent’s area. I feel like I am much weaker at middlegame reduction/attack than any other phase of the game.

Thanks again!

Since you posted a game you won, I posted a few variations that would have helped your opponent. :slight_smile:

Thank you, definitely helpful to see how he could have taken advantage of my mistakes. Looks like I should have split instead of approaching that corner, or at least jumped out when pincered, since he had a few opportunities to make a pretty imposing moyo.
