I’m pretty awful at dealing with fuseki. I try to play it cool, and just build my territory in response, but always seem to come up short in terms of compensation. Perhaps I’m just bad at invading. I this game, my fuseki response went like it usually does. I tried to invade when it was probably too late, and ended up with lots of weak groups scrapping for life. I managed to live everywhere, and won by 4.5 points as a result.
I shouldn’t have. My opponent had a couple of mistakes that directly lead to that outcome, and had they punished my cruddy invasions properly, the game like would’ve been a rout. What could I have done differently, to get to a midgame where I’m not already trying to make up for lost ground?
