This is a game between Saint Ravitt (joelnelsonb) and Darev (Rev). The game will be played under the Japanese scoring method with a 6.5 point komi awarded to white. Saint Ravitt will move first since he is down in the exchange between the competitors. May the best player win!

I begin with the top right star point. The top right is played out of etiquette and the star point for it's balanced position, being neither to high or too low nor is it biased towards a particular direction of the board.

I respond with the lower left star point. I don't want to play a cross game, and with a symmetric opening move for Black, I don't want to break the symmetry on move 2.

White responds in kind so I continue to grab the next empty corner. I choose the 3x4 point in order to promote a balanced game (between strength and efficiency) and I choose the point opposite to the star point stone because I prefer to give myself the option of playing the Chinese rather than the Orthodox. My expectation is for white to respond by taking the bottom right corner though I cannot predict which point exactly. Note that if I'm playing white, I ignore the last empty corner in order to approach the top left directly but that's just my preference (I don't enjoy dealing with enclosures or the Chinese opening).

I play near the last empty corner. I have some variations in mind, responding to a potential invasion by Black that will allow me to develop quickly and gain influence. However, it also invites the taisha. So, there is that. Due to the nature of this match, I want to play a unique game.

I consider preventing the bottom right enclosure to be priority. I expect white to respond at Q5 if he even does. I would not.

Considering the simple variations of the response at Q6, the opportunity to build a wall with an extension on the lower side would be welcome. On the other hand, there are the not so simple variations.

I'm not in love with this kick, however, I don't wanna let my corner become too weak in order to preserve the strength of the upper left stone. If I'm white, I just extend down.

Yeah, this seems a bit painful for black so early on. Black could hane underneath, but it doesn't change the result much.

OTOH, if black ends with sente, approaching the bottom left becomes quite big. I'd be more comfortable with that if the upper left were a 4-4 stone, though, or facing the other way.

The kick does seem a bit odd. It was a bit of a headscratcher, but in line with my original stated goal, I want to extend up, creating a wall facing the start point, with hopes of an eventual extension to take the lower side. It appears that we're going to avoid most of the taisha nastiness. Good, I like the way this is developing.

The bottom right is now full potential to begin a real fight. Therefore, my theory tells me to proceed with development and approach the bottom left. I approach on the side of my 3x4 stone.

This is closer than I normally approach a 3-4 stone on this side. The two space approach is more normal for me, but I want to put a lot of pressure on Black's corner. Also, I don't want Black to take the left side. If Black approaches the lower left from the other side, White can play the 3-5 on the top left after jumping out and there is always the extension on either the top or the left side. Even if Black tries to take the left side, I get to play another move on the top, and develop a presence deep in Black's claim, which I consider a fair exchange. This should develop into something interesting. I must stay willing to give up a little bit on the top left in order to help the lower left 4-4

Other options:
White could back off to F3, but black would most likely play D10, which is exactly what I'm trying to prevent, or at least make it not as valuable.

Pincering the attacking stone would either result in a counter pincer or an attack from the other side of the stone, neither of which I want to deal with without a stone putting pressure on one of my opponent's corners.

I don't like the approach in the upper left, but more importantly what about the lower right? Seems like white can seal black in in sente, at the very least. I think both players messed up by ignoring that corner.

White's approach in the upper left seems oddly timed. However, white has enough pressure on the bottom right corner to easily seal me in therefore white's approach in the top left is a bit more threatening than it otherwise would be (because I don't want white taking the outside in two corners so early in the game). That being what it is, I believe that with an extra move in the bottom left, I can interfere with white's development along the bottom while also getting the inside track on the development down the left side and given that the top left isn't urgent, I chose the double-purpose move.

My goal here is to get out from the corner. Hopefully, I can play away first and play a second move in the top left.

This attachment seems a little desperate of white given that it will weaken the D14 stone and give me strength for a great counter-attack. I would've probably played E5 or a pincer. I expect white to extend in response to my hane.

Having my two weak stones in the lower left would be bad, but having my lone stone in the top left attacked would be even worse. A second move here seems more critical as I can fight in the lower left.

White just abandoned a joseki part way through to play a second approach move. I take this as white saying "screw this civilized stuff! I wanna fight! Therefore I oblige.

The lone stone in the upper corner is in no trouble. It has room for extension and it is on the fourth row. So there is no hurry back there. But the lower left corner is in a middle of a fight, and I think you should play there first. Otherwise the D6 stone seems pointless.
