I considered C16, but I don't like F17 in reply.

Well, Violence hasn't signed on in nearly a month. From his posts it seems like he occasionally gets busy times, work-wise.

My bad guys. Work is busier, and I had net problems, and I just plain forgot about this Malkovich(I've been thinking about Malkovich 1 much more often) I'll reply more frequently.

Eh. This is a phase of the game that I have trouble with. I genuinely have trouble telling the difference between what's playable and what's unplayable, let alone what's great versus merely good, at junctures like this. This was my first instinct; further analysis suggests that we're weakening our group by playing this way. Yet further analysis reveals that it would be risky for W to seal us into the corner, since if our group lives between his two groups, he's got nothing.

I'm not sure how to best improve our position elsewhere. Thoughts include: P5, L3, K4, N17, Q17. Or G10. I don't know. It seems difficult to threaten their groups, or to box off more territory for ourselves, I kinda like the idea of play M8 and trying to separate one of their groups from the other two, but in my experience that sort of idea never works as well as reduction.

While I am not sure yet if this is a good move or not yet (I suspect not), this way of thinking is kyu-ish. White will not have nothing if he seals us in, he'll have an attack on our group. We should not just be asking for life, because white will get valuable forcing moves against us and we're going to make like no points with that group. (I am not sure how severe the attack will be, to be fair. It definitely won't be fun, esp. because Violence is over there and I bet he can outfight me) We're doing fine on points, there is no need to play something like this. I dunno if I should correct this, though.. I'd much rather have something like l3.

c17 is definitely an option but it doesn't seem to gain much
but also seems to be aji keshi
i rather keep c17 an open option

I'm thinking this plan to get more territory while keeping whit e groups weak like below

and if we move elsewhere, white gets to play somewhere around o4 area
and a move like this not only strengthens whites weak groups but also try to build some type of moyo in the center and black will likely be sealed off

these are my major thoughts when i picked this L3 move
any thoughts especially from spectators are welcome

i think this is near the turning point of middle game which is why i made the change

I wanted to invade, but that would leave this group weak. This should help it connect with G8, at least, and it threatens N3.

I'm still wary of making a change after the last few. This comment isn't necessarily reflective of this move, but somewhere down the road we're going to have to make a change, I think ... I hope I can spot the right change to make, because I'd prefer to make the change over leaving it to Violence (one change point loss vs two) ... tricky, tricky ...

This is gote, I think, but it does have a number of follow-ups that will start to turn the tide in our favor locally if W tenukis to the top... whereas if I play on the top now, W has a lot of good options for making territory here (I'm thinking of it as reverse sente).

The only alternative move I was considering was O17... I think the top right is getting more and more important. If they get the 3-3 invasion, we look pretty overconcentrated. And our follow-up moves are less good.

I hope a fight starts soon, even if it is Violence there. I'm getting antsy.
