Playing one game a day and review it seems to pay off. I may just have played the best game in my life.

OK it was a handicap game but soon I increased the 20+ advantage to 40 and kept it there or better.

In particular I feel like I did a good job of applying ijime.

Games 11-20, biggest mistakes

1) playing slow moves (7)
small connections 5
staying low i/o cutting (joseki)
live small in gote

2) missed opportunities (4)
omit sente shape
not exploiting aji 3

3) bad fighting, cutting, killing (6)
leave the fight for no reason
missing the fight
wrong cut
cut small scale
kill i/o connecting, allowing bullying
unnecessary invasion

4) technique/shape (9)
allowing hane at the head of 2
cutting in bad shape 2
missing vital point in whole position 3
bad shape 2

5) reading (5)
wrong choice in crosscut
bad reading
L&D mistake
failure to kill
no need to sacrifice


So slow moves and bad shape remain the big issues

How's it going on OGS? I think reaching 2D there might be harder than KGS.

Exploring OGS, I fooled around with a 1 kyu computer account there for a few games - and I think its a bit stronger than 1k KGS (at least in even games).

I think the level is at leat 2 grades apart. As a KGS 2d I'm not yet at the rank limit of my current capability, as a OGS 1k I'm often struggling. An OGS 3k is still a tough opponent, who'll take advantage of my errors. A KGS 3k is easy meat for me.

This is why a stable KGS 3d and OGS 1d are kind of equivalent objectives, the former possibly being even easier.

Yes, KGS ranks are weaker than OGS ranks, especially in the kyu range. This was discussed here: https://lifein19x19.com/viewtopic.php?p=262667#p262667

45 days into 2021 and 45 games played, I reached 3d. That's one. Now I have to confirm.

I can of course continue on the same rhythm, including daily reading training, but I'd like to do something extra:
- play a particular opening consistently
- review 3d games and get confidence I can beat them
- stabilize and play good endgame
- practice reducing moyos
- ...

The result of consistently playing and reviewing games really shows:
