One stone at a time

Over the past few days I've focused on getting better at shapes by watching Dsaun's shape lecture and reading the book 'Shape up' by Charles Matthews and Seong-June Kim. With my increased knowledge on shape making I've start to look back at some of my earlier games and found a massive amount of bad shape present in those. After this I'm trying to be more concisious of shape in my games. There is however so much that needs my attention, direction of play, liberty counting, terrority counting I can't help but feel overwhelmed every time I play. Hopefully that will get better as i progress.

At OGS I've finally hit 14k. This was my most recent game against a 15k player. There is so much room from improvement (with obvious mistakes from both sides). But overall I'm content with my progress so far, but very eager to learn more.

Current rank: 14 kyu (OGS)
Current goal: 9 kyu (OGS) by 31-12-2018

Re: shape.

is overextended. The rule of thumb is that from a wall of n stones (if n=1,2,3,4), make an n+1 space extension.

Let me pass on some applicable advice for that kind of overwhelm. Study the game, but when you play, forget what you have learned.

That sounds paradoxical, but focus on the current game, the current move. If you need something that you have learned, you will have it. If you need something that you haven't learned yet, maybe you will find it. Relax and focus.

You outplayed the opponent in the opening. I added a few notes about it.

The highlight of the game is the fight in the middle arising from the invasion of your moyo, between 57 and 64, where I'm offering some thoughts, fueled by LZ analysis.

Thanks for the extensive review. Very interesting to see the patterns that you / LZ came up with. The double hane at 64 didn't feel solid, so I'm glad to see some nice alternative. Also, I pulled back on move 72 since i regarded that middle group as dead, he didn't notice it and played 73 which lost him/her the game I think.

@Bill: Will keep that in mind thank you .
