It does feel a bit daft sticking “review request” as the subject line in a subtopic that is dedicated to requesting reviews. Anyway, I hope anyone reading this doesn’t feel too cheated that that’s what it is.
This was the closest I’ve come to a win against this person yet. I felt like many of the moves I was making were less than optimal, but couldn’t think of better ones. Can anyone help?
P.S. - Since life is inherently meaningless, it’s up to each of us to provide our own…
I see a lot of major tactical problems for both sides, with Black punishing a bit better and more often than White. That went a long way toward structuring the game in Black’s favor.
Thanks for the review - I appreciate the comments. Despite how it might appear, I actually do want to get better at this.
Maybe next time though, you could not beat about the bush so much and just tell it like it is?
Thanks again for your time.
Oh yeah - I don’t know if this is a breach of etiquette, but since the reviewer pretty much quit in disgust halfway through, I wonder if anyone else might like to finish the job - Seems like you’ll need a strong stomach though, given the appalling quality of the play
I won’t make a review just for a few moves, but continuing with the unfinished review:
.with 174 you should peep at e13 instead, putting more pressure and making more territory
.in 188 you make an empty triangle in a place he can’t even attack, not to mention you had to cover some cuttin points he exploited immediately
.192 you respond to a captured stone giving atari, having one of your stones in atari (i think you probably missed that atari there)
.then you have an atari battle in a place he totally succeed. I mean, even if you do capture some meaningless stones, you have barelly no profit. either connect or play somewhere else
.in 222 instead of playing that contact move, you should make a monkey jump and steal more territory
.244 is a complete nonsense, you have bigger points, like the peep i already mentioned
.270, i don’t even…
The reason you lost for a few points is due to black playing bad and slack moves too.
Hope it helped you a little
One more thing, I don’t think severence stopped the review cause his stomach collapsed (it probably collapsed after t10 though). There wasn’t that much to keep commenting, most reviews don’t cover a lot of endgame moves, he probably was focused on pointing the big mistakes that made you lose
Yes. It helps a lot. It’s kind of painful to have my ineptitude pointed out, but it’s there and I want rid of it. Thanks for your comments.
