Not too much to talk about so far. So I'll digress.

The UK scuba diving season starts soon - my first trip is boook is booked for April. I'm not hard enough for winter diving, although my new drysuit looks like it may make if feasible.

This forum seems to have slowed down since I registered. It's a shame, because I like Malkovitch games.

Still early days. I tend to try not to overplay too much early on in a handicap game, and to try to catch up slowly. So that will be my basic strategy unless it becomes clear that I need to achieve something unreasonable.

Greetings to Drmwc and observers.

Drmwc is about 4D European, which according to this page ( http://senseis.xmp.net/?RankWorldwideComparison ) is about 6D AGA. I'm about 1D AGA. So there should be about a five stone difference.
But experience has shown that the extra time available tends to favor the weaker player, so we made it a four stone handicap.

Thanks to Drmwc for playing a handicap game.

In the beginning, I'm going to answer every move, keeping him outnumbered in every local area. That way he can't start fighting anytime soon.

Taking care of my stone on the RHS feels logical. It's not the only thing to do, but a B pincer feels severe so I' circumventing that.

The move I've played leaves an invasion in between my 2 stone. That invasion isn't a total disater (although it's probaly where I'd play with B given the next move). so maybe I should try something differnt.

I don't like the slide because the pincer feels good for B- the Korean attachment at R13 is another good move for B6 here.

So I could try the 2 point extension without the slide. But the sequence shown feels a little painfule for me. (I don't know if 6-7 is still joseki for B here, but it seems good for him to me. the 6-7 excchnge is seen a lot less in pro games than it once was.) 6-7-8 feels to me like a nice flow for B.

When black plays 1, white has to respond with 2. Black can start a vigorous fight with 'c', or he can play safe with 'a', whereupon white has to reinforce with 'b'. Then black has sente. :>
The current position is slightly different, but only in that my lower right group would be stronger. I must confess that I don't follow all of the pros' logic, but I think I can apply it nonetheless.

Of course, if I do come out with sente, pincering 3 could be fun if I feel adventurous, or taking K17 or J17 is good if I want to play safe.

Ewww. 6 is cramped and makes 4 inefficient; it would now be better at q3 to better protect the corner. I expect white to either tenuki as 6 is slow or fix the gap as that's a good exchange for white (maybe with p10 rather than q12 so that it's less inefficient to answer r15 kick), or maybe s16 and treat r10 lightly as black's slow 6 and 4 makes him capturing it more acceptable.

:b6: is unappetizing. It is cramped, and White does not threaten to play there, either. But it does combine attack and defense. :)

:w7: is my sealed move. :)

Black 6 is quite small -it's almost certainly a blunder. It does make an invasion of the RHS more severe, so I'll defend. The gain from 7 is bigger than the gain from 6, which is a hnadful of points at most.

If I had B, I would have chosen from one of the diagrams below:

This type of line is aggresive. B aims at a and grabs the chance to get the initiative.

If B wants to defend the corner, 6 here is better than the game. Next a pincer around a is severe, and B can still invade on the RHS.

Invading directly was possible.

There were a few choices for my move, but the on I've chosen feels quite natural.

Yay! He played my move. Bill's idea didn't occur to me, I think it's a bit too much overplay handicap style. Seeing as black has already made a mistake on his 3rd move (how big a mistake? at least 1/4 of a stone I'd say) and white is more like egf 5d I don't think white needs to risk overplay to win this.


@drmwc:

It's just terminology, but I would call 6 a mistake not a blunder which to me is far more serious and usually involves swearing on the next move when your opponent captures something or achieves some other big tactical success due to a mistake far below your level. (though tbh I am surprised a dan player like Joaz can play 6 without wincing)

The pro position you are probably getting confused with is (and probably o16 is low at o17 if white slides):

How is this 1 different from yours in relation to the lower right corner?

Also you said white had to slide at 2 but he didn't. Did you consider his game move?

I agree with Uberdude that :b6: loses 1/4 stone or more. :)

In addition, the exchange of :wc: and :bc: is a plus. What is not to love? :)

Normally, i would prefer "a" to :w5:, aiming to build a framework on the bottom side, but after :wc: is on the board, an approach to the top right corner gives me a one stone advantage in the top right quadrant, instead of just pulling even without :wc:. I want to seize the opportunity while I can..

True, :w7: gives White an extra stone in the top right quadrant, but Black has an easy play at :b8:, for instance. Besides, after :w7: the :b4: stone looks better.

How is this 1 different from yours in relation to the lower right corner?

Also you said white had to slide at 2 but he didn't. Did you consider his game move?


The lower right is obviously different in that R8 is stronger. I didn't consider the game move at length, figuring that it does less because because of R8. I assume if he is going to build strength near my overconcentrated position, that is inefficient for him.
So I was sure that he would slide.

TTBOMR, white almost always played the slide, being willing to allow the pincering of 3 in return for the corner and subsequent pressure against the O16/Q16 stones. R10 still has lots of aji and B must take a move to deal with it.

I ain't scared. Maybe I should be, but I'm not. I made a very solid - maybe even small - play last move. He responds with something equally unimpressive.

As noted in my reply to Uberdude, white's latest is building strength near my already solid group. I won't say that this is a mistake, but it does seem a bit inefficient - or, at least non-threatening.
Regardless, it gives me sente.

Err...well...not quite. There is a point to his move that is sort of sente-ish.

As I mentioned before, I would like to play J17. He can slide into the corner, and I reply, getting a nice comfortable territory:

That is just too nice to black, so white would want to reply instead with a 3-3 invasion. It is tricky to do so, because 9 looks good for black:

The point of this is that the innocuous looking P10 threatens to invade at R17.

I'd like to get a bigger portion of the upper right corner.

So I'm going to continue with what I remember of some pro games that I had been studying. As noted before, the position is not exactly the same, but it differs in that my lower right position is more solid, so I don't see that engaging in complications on the right side can be any worse for me.

The idea here is that I can keep him busy replying to the invasion, and get S16 in sente.

Someday I'm going to run out of memorized pro game, and I'll have to think. For now, I'm happy to continue with a line that encourages him to continue strengthening a group near my overconcentrated group.


Trigger for Drwmc to look at after he moves, and observers to look at any time:

This may not be too bad for B - B aims to create a wall while sacrificing the stones. However, it should give a position that's palayble for W as well. Alternatively:

However, I don't seem to be able to cut at a next and if W b, B c, Black has better share than the previous variation.

EDIT: 10 as played is a pretty good move. If I tenuki, I'm really very thin and my group may become weak. After 11 as played, my group is pretty thick.

The B stone retains some life, for example later on:

This moave may threaten either side. It's probably too small to be played immediately, and it gives me good aji.

I have two semi-completed groups, each needing one more move, and each with a weak spot that he can exploit.

In the upper right, 'a' is my natural move, and if I don't, then 'b' is his move to undercut and invade.
In the lower right, 'c' is my move, and if I don't, then 'd' is his invasion.

Let's look at them separately.

If I play in the lower right with 12, he can make the undercut with 13, and then 14 is a solid 15 points, leaving 13 too close to my strength. So he needs to play 'e' or 'f', and I can continue with 'g'.
He also has to worry about me playing 'h'. He can play it himself, becoming heavy and I can then pincer it with 'i'.

That looks ok.
The other possibility grabs 20 points up top, but leaves me with complications in the lower right:

I get no territory, and much of the influence that I could build is facing north, where it is neutralized by his strength on the right side.

This looks okay to me. O3 looks not that helpful, black's group isn't in trouble and white ends in gote for black to take a big move or kill off the O3 aji. I expect that white wouldn't invade yet, but rather approach another corner in response to :b12:.

Honestly, I think black can safely ignore both sides to make a san-ren-sei or something similar on the left and be quite well off.

If white were to play in the lower right, I think he would play the slide instead of the 3-3 invasion. If black answers at :b14: below, the marked stone looks misplaced, a tiny extension in a non-urgent area. Therefore I think the kick black played is good since it gives that stone some meaning.

If white were to play in the lower right, I think he would play the slide instead of the 3-3 invasion. If black answers at :b14: below, the marked stone looks misplaced, a tiny extension in a non-urgent area. Therefore I think the kick black played is good since it gives that stone some meaning.
