It's hard to say too much about the beginning, given the misclicks, but for all that, you did alright and got a bit lucky.

@Skydyr Thank you for your comments! I just didn't get one thing, after :w16: E2, if Black plays G1, G2, J3 or J2 to defend the cutting point at G2, can White live in the corner?

I don't see it happening easily (though it may be possible), but who said white has to live in the corner? White could just take a bunch of forcing moves on the outside.

A little update from me! My go work schedule is as follows;

[*] Solving tesuji and L&D problems from Get Strong at Tesuji, Cho Elementary and 1001 L&D.
[*] Learning josekis from my games and practicing them each day in a repetitive manner.
[*] Playing games (1 per day average) & reviewing each of them
[*] Playing games using Clossi Approach (http://www.shawnsgogroup.com/the-clossi-approach.html)
[*] Creating a problem sgf lists from reviews of my games and solving them repetitively.

Here is my last game vs a 4kyu, i got some questions as always:)i was white this game and i know there is a blunder in move 264, but he didnt see it.

Another win against a 5 kyu. I was Black this game. Thanks to your comments, I have finally managed to become a 5 kyu from 11 kyu in 1 effective (without long pauses) year. Maybe more If i play more, we'll see, I have %100 win percentage against 5 kyus now!

Your play in this last game seemed very mature to me. I particularly liked your willingness to make thickness, use thickness to attack instead of take territory, and sacrifice stones. I don't think your stop at 5 kyu will be very long. :)

Thank you for the courage mate! I have stopped for a long time at 10-11 kyu though:)

My study schedule now is that I'm solving questions from 1001 L&D questions, Cho's Elementary L&D and Get Strong at Tesuji at the moment. Other than this I go over a few corner situations each date cumulatively (1 situation at day1, 2 sit. at day 2,... 7 sit at day7) & repetitively from 100 Tips for Amateur Players-2.

I played a KGS 4kyu this morning, and WON! I didn't expect to win against a 4kyu to be honest but he tenuki'ed too much for my opinion. However it feels still better because I have a lower win percentage against guys who tenuki's much. I seem not to know how to punish them. Here is the game and my comments:

Another KGS game vs 1kyu, which i lost with Black. I thought my right side group was fine all game long somehow.. My questions and review can be found in the game. I think I try to read so many variants in game and losing time reading insensible variants.
By the way I became a 4kyu in KGS with my other account! Hope to solidify the rank.
