Review request 7kyu vs 6kyu

Hello fellow go addicts,

could anybody review my game pls:

Normally i post only games, where i lost, but i think it could be useful for improving my game, to know why i won this particular game. What did i right, that i won this game??!

Topics could be:

→ Generell opening (Did black played the bottom right joseki?! right??!)
→ Midgame strategy ( I tried to attack whites thick group on bottom middle, by a cap move at move 39. After that i tried to build a moyo on right site ( I think i did this OK)
→ Endgame moves and fighting

Thanks guys have fun! :>

I am similar level (6k) so I cant say too much but here goes :

Good :

  • lots of sacrifice and tenuki (ignore when opponent attacks unimportant stones)

  • lots of cutting opponent and staying connected yourself

  • solid endgame

To work on:

  • peeps at m4 and m6 look like thank you moves to me and leaves those stones weak

  • I don’t know why, but g4 seems a bit… not good. Maybe bad shape (why not solid connection? ) or maybe just a little slow

  • I wonder if you could have attacked the lower left harder, maybe even killed it, e.g. falsify the eye with c4 and squeeze from all sides

Overall though, good game. As shown by the decisive win!

R 15 looks bad, i ll play S 15 locally instead. Big difference in terms of life for both groups, but then S 18 is crucial for both and not taken.
One saying is urgent before big. A move which take away and make base is urgent. Besides It’s big too.
If AI didn’t like M6 peep i think It’s because of direction, peep from other side being better.


Two moves I like:



The joseki is

But the game move wasn’t bad. Just be aware that after white Q7, R7, P7, there will be an intense fight.



Nowadays people tend to grab territory, which usually leads to positions easier to control. In fact, the previous move I’d not approach from that side. Instead, I’ll consider something like this first so that this group can have a base.

I didn’t expect the game move, but it isn’t bad. I actually think it’s creative and beautiful. It’s good to try this kind of influence style.
