I agree with everything you said fwiffo, except for the last diagram:

Oops. Well, I'm sure they can imagine a correct example. :mrgreen:

Can anyone who has a backup of this game suggest a good way for me to get a copy of it? The rapidshare only allows 10 downloads (and I'm at work so I can't see if that's used up). I would love to have a copy to go through once the game was over, and I may try to memorize it beforehand, since most of the mistakes I am making are being corrected. If email would work better, I would gladly give my address to someone willing to share it.

Send me a pm with your address and I'll send it. It's 4 MB.

Alright, I didn't want to usurp Phelan's post on page one, but since there is some concern that the download limit will be used up, here is my copy of the Big Brother Malkovich thread from GoDiscussions.

However, since the maximum allowed file is not enough for a normal .zip format, you'll have to download a program called 7-zip from http://7-zip.org in order to unpack the archive. I have other formats that I could have uploaded (such as bzip2), but I think this one is easiest for the most amount of people.

Edit: Or go with what Phelan wrote as I was writing this :razz: . Whichever is easier for you.

I was going to suggest that you contact Dusk Eagle too, since his copies seem to be smaller. Apparently it wasn't needed. :)

All according to keikaku.

Just to demonstrate, we cannot kill black in the corner.
I compared 'a' with 'b' in my last post. Both are sente to attempt to kill those three stones. I explained before that I prefer 'a' because it makes the fight less complicated and I am more confident with it. I AM a bit tempted to take 'c' to look after our top group, but I would rather take 'a' in sente first. That should mostly settle the stuff in that region for us, if the top group lives.

Okay, so we may not live inside, but it seems like we can at least get out and stable. I don't like that top middle black wall, but black has more weak groups than we do, so it can't be too horrible. Anyways, we get something on the left to compensate.

The more we play, the more that top middle stone Violence plays gets annoying =P

I don't approve.

I am about to put foward some major ideas; they will be heard and pondered. If not all of them please, surely a few will in some sort, then, I shall have contributed to the progress of our age, and shall be content.

Dang! We appear to have a misunderstanding here. I infer that Terr believes that I changed the move solely because of ordering: that we should play D18 first, then come back to D12. Whereas I am not all that pleased with D12.

There is a direction of play issue here. Some groups have multiple directions to go. Others have only one. Let's look at them.


The marked group has two possible directions. It can go low, like this:

I consider this to be appallingly submissive. It gets us very little territory, and it allows Black's three floating stones to loosely connect with his pincer stone at H16.

It can also go out into the middle like this:

Now black's stones are separated. Their pincer stone is vulnerable to a white play at 'a'. Their three floating stones can extend with 'b' but we happily play 'c'. Not only is this bad for black on general principles in that they are pushing the cart, but in this particular position it is even worse for them as we get closer to the crucial stone at D7.
Beginners: see http://senseis.xmp.net/?PushingTheCartFromBehind

Black's three marked stones also have two directions. They can go south:

$$ | . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . |
$$ ---------------------------------------[/go]


As noted above, this sequence is good for white. White gets territory ( 'a' is sente any time white wants it ) and white connects to the D7 stone. Black gets influence, but is in danger of becoming eyeless and heavy. White can start a double attack with 'b'.


Their proper direction, IMHO, is the shape move around F14, or something similar:

This starts forming eye shape. begins a connection to a neighboring black stone, and threatens to lock white in.

The next group to consider is the west side white group. It has two possible directions of play. It can turn like this:

Both seem good. Both strengthen the connection to the D7 stone, and both impair the health of the three floating black stones.


In summary, we have a group that has one good direction and one bad direction, and we have a group that has two good directions. Choosing a direction for the second group is no problem - we'll be relatively happy either way. We don't have to choose right now.
But we do have to make sure that the first group does not get forced into a bad direction. This makes it far more urgent. Conveniently, when we play in the proper direction, it interferes with black's preferred direction. Getting to G14 - or nearby - first is important to both sides.

So I choose to remove younger brother's move, and play in the proper direction off of the upper group. I'm not sure exactly where I will play, but it will probably be one of the moves marked below.

Hehe, I predict that this is the second time the top player will revert to the weaker player's choice :)

At least I'm not the only one!

Joaz's analysis is spot on, unfortunately we lose the other 2 points, but this way I shouldn't have to step in.

Sorry about the delay. This is more complex than I expected.

I can analyze one of the lines quickly:

This turns out to be too slow. Black locks white in easily.

No, no, it's not complex. That man needs to find his inner 7 kyu. I'm afraid he's going to go General Melchett on us.

It sounds like Joaz is reading himself into a corner, because our stones are placed in a fashion that makes him uncomfortable, no matter what he reads, he's just unsure of what to do.
