I see why it is better, it stops white from completing a capture of a stone and it also allows black to cut white apart. My problem is why I don't see those moves unless it's way after the fact.


Well, Black can't cut White apart, but the underneath hane does allow Black to save his stone. :)

Excuse me, you are a beginner. Sure, there are things that you don't see. But the fact that you learn them quickly, as you did in this case, means that you can advance rapidly. Some people are slow starters, that's all. :)

I say b.s.


I say double BS. And those are my initials! ;)

I say double BS, again. Play on whatever size board you want to.

Edit: And play with a proper handicap, one that gives you around a 50-50 chance of winning. :)

That said, I am a fan of small boards and the capture game, where the first player to capture a stone wins. I have a friend who I would have to give many, many stones to on the 19x19, but the capture game on a 7x7 board makes a good game for us. :)

Hi,
Seeing that Black 3 and 5 could have been connected is maybe a bit technical for your level.

The biggest mistakes in my eyes are moves 21 to 27. You are defending a small amount of points while a much larger amount are at stakes on the top side of the board. You should let White take the small and play on the middle top star point in order to take the big.

Move 29 is locally very good. You didn't make the mistake of playing the hane just above it, that could not work.

Moves 31,33, 35 are correct for your level.

Then, with move 37, it is better to play on the 3-3 point instead of the 3-4. It secures the corner more effectively.
