11 is played at a. white plays 12 at y or z, black responds with the one white doesn't choose. Black lives.

I think black's shape has problems, but I'm not sure if just going with the usual sequence is good enough. This looks like a L+1 shape, which is good for us, if I remember correctly.

I'm going to have to bail out of this game for a while, I've just had a pretty major family life crisis and want to clear my plate out for a while :(

Sorry guys, hope you can pick up a suitable replacement!

i am thinking black resigning is better solution than finding replacement.
lets post our opinion so we can agree on this.

Last night I meant to say best wishes/hope it works out/etc but couldn't decide which was appropriate and ended up saying nothing... Anyway, I hope everything works out ok... :/

Black's around 10-15 points behind. I was hoping we would've been able to live in the corner or something, but that's not happening, apparently.

I'm cool with res.

"a" obviously still looks nice too...


I think 68 is not necessary in the explanation, so white may get sente with the given sequence.

However, black may choose to capture at 65 and ignore a white atari on the two stones, so maybe the main point is still valid.

Let's make absolutely sure of that corner, in sente. I really wanted to save that top right instead, and I hope Phelan sees it, but I think this is a more honest move order as that's gote:

Black has to connect at 69 to save four stones, right? Or am I missing some thing else big?

Either way, great game guys. It was a lot of fun to watch. The comments were both insightful (at times), and hilarious at others. Some times both at the same time. ;)

I look forward to another one of these, or maybe even participating in one myself some time in the future.

Wow.. its pretty bad when you go back and review the game after a while and face palm on your own moves.... What was I thinking on some of those? Wow!

But this game was really fun. Hope to play another soon.

This seems to be the nature of Malkovich games ... at least, if they go for an extended period of time. You improve and learn new ideas, and go back and think "Did I really play that move THERE?" ... it's an interesting feeling.

I made two horrible below-my-level mistakes in this game. (Sorry, guys!)

I also made a lot of moves I wouldn't play again. It was interesting to see my justification for them. Sometimes I convinced myself, sometimes not...

So it's over? I hope I didn't create too many problems for black but I'm almost sure I did. :roll:

Oh, and topazg, hope everything goes well.
