Hello fine folks,
would appriciate some insights about my recent game here:
I do not have any specific question about this game, just want to know my basic style of play
→ Fuseki and joseki
→ Middle game strategy
→ Local and global approach to the game
Would appriciate some comments on my generel game style this far ( 8 kyu plus minus 1 kyu ).
Appriciate everybody who can give me advise, which part of the game i have to work on !
Thanks a lot in advance
In the fuseki it seems to me you are too generous. So a idea would be to compare and study what you played in the corners and what is considered as fair in the theory . You can use the joseki OGS tool (or books if you have).
I posted the original game instead of the review, I hope you don’t mind.
You had no territory at all until your opponent made a massive mistake.
Just take your points in the opening, and if your opponent doesn’t take something of equal value then you’re automatically winning.
I genuinely don’t know what your intent was in the opening. I didn’t understand any of the moves and I couldn’t come up with any kind of plan that you might have had (fast territory, influence, large potential, light fast play creating aji for fighting, etc).
You wanna have a goal in mind when you play, and you want to play in such a way that your moves all aim towards that goal you decided on.
Could you tell me what I should work on specifically… Would appreciate it, because I am too weak to know about my mistakes Sir.
As @Kaworu_Nagisa said. starting when sharing the corners you need to follow some plans. use the established josekis you can find in the tool here to get better results.
Ai review. I’m not really sure what to comment on either. There was a lot going on with different groups and invasions. I guess there’s a few points where you could’ve cut your opponent but didn’t, but it would take some reading to see why it works/doesn’t, or the strategic timing of some of the cuts.
Thanks Sir for your answer!
