I guess I'll do one of these... I don't have a lot of time these days, so mostly I've just been playing games now and then. I'm a little rusty.

Feel free to leave feedback.

I won this game. But I didn't read out what would happen, and just played without caring much about whether I lived or died. Probably a bad attitude:

I like these commented games a lot. To view them i use the Download SGF link in the webpageviewer, but for the last game it sends back Request-URI Too Large.

Thanks for the comment, LuckyJim. Now that I know someone is reading my games, maybe I'll be motivated to keep playing on a regular basis :-)

I also get the same error that you describe. As a workaround for now, you can copy the text hidden below, paste it into a text file, and name the file with an SGF extension:

I lost this game.

PW[adversary]PB[me]WR[3d]BR[1d]DT[2013-06-10]AB[pd][dp]C[I played black this game.]RE[W+Time]
;W[pq]WL[57.74]C[Hmm. Should I approach Q3? Nah, I'll play normally and just take the other corner. I should try to wait for a mistake, since he's stronger.]
;B[dd]BL[51.582]
;W[qf]WL[56.038]
;B[nc]BL[49.806]C[Yes, takin' it easy.]
;W[qk]WL[54.034]C[Hmm. Chinese-like opening, if it counts in a handicap game. How should I play? Approaching at Q5 or R5 is the point of R9.

I remember a game sometime I looked at a long time ago where Cho Chikun approached at N4.

I don't review a lot of pro games, but I like N4 since I can threaten Q5 and K4 at the same time.]
;B[mp]BL[39.667]
;W[jp]WL[49.071]C[Hmm, I guess Q5 it is, then.]
;B[po]BL[33.658]
;W[oo]WL[46.097]C[Shall I simply play Q4, assume he plays P4, then play R3? Or maybe R3 directly?

Seems very passive, and basically I throw away N4.

Maybe it's OK, because I get points, and play safely...

But it'd be a waste to not use N4 much... OK, I've decided. I'll cut at P4. He'll play Q4 almost for sure, then I'll play R5. He can't kill P4 immediately, per what I've read... So, let's do it!]

;W[pp]WL[44.115]
;B[qo]BL[10]OB[3]
;W[on]WL[39.01]C[OK, he doesn't try to attack P4 immediately. I guess I should strengthen whatever is weaker. R5 looks OK, so how about P3?]
;B[oq]BL[10]OB[3]C[**(Post-game thinking: In retrospect, I think I should play either S3 or Q7. After all, P4 can't be immediately captured, and I think more action is on the right side.)**]

;B[lr]BL[10]OB[3]C[(**Post-game thinking: In retrospect, maybe O3 is not so bad. After all, I can sacrifice O2 to get some stones in for free around N4. Additionally, it's not balanced now - R5 is looking sad.**)]

I guess I have to make some sort of action NOW or I'm toast. J4 looks like a good point - I have no idea if it works, but I have just a few seconds to play. Let's do it.]

;W[nl]WL[10]OW[3]C[Ok, he tenukis. I don't know if Q7 can live, but if I play J2, I *know* this lives... So I'll do this now, and hope for the best after he moves.]

;B[nm]BL[10]OB[1]

;W[cn]WL[10]OW[2]C[Doh, he played there first! I want to live somehow with D4. He's super strong. I'll play B5. Seems to give corner space, and though it's usually a bad move when I don't have a stone around D10, I feel it's OK since I just want to live near his strong wall for now.]

FYI to anyone paying attention to these posts:

The comments I leave in the games are, for the most part, a reproduction of what I remember to be my thoughts at that particular time in the game.

Typically I do the following:
1.) Play the game.
2.) Get the SGF.
3.) Change the names of the players in case anyone of my opponents would care about me posting the game.
4.) Remove any in-game comments, and add what I remember thinking at that time.
5.) Post the game here.

This time, I also added some comments prefixed with "Post-game thinking", which means that this was not a thought I remember having during the game, but it's a thought that I have now that the game is over.

I think you have unrealistic expectations for what you can read/notice in a 10-second game. Watch the 9d's, they lose track of the big picture all the time in blitz. Pros do too. But as for life in this game...

The gap at :w10: prevents White for cutting you off. Black connects at "a" next and reduces the center at the same time. Black is still in the game. If White "a" instead of 10, Black plays atari at "b", White has to capture at "c" and Black connects at 10, capturing White's center stones.

I lost this game (Post #8).

@216 This move was because I was afraid and didn't read well. Only 10 seconds per move, but I should have known that B M1 could simply be answered with L1. If L4, I simply play N1. If he tries to play O1, I have time to play J1.

Conclusion: This move is ridiculous, and I should play elsewhere. Maybe T17?...

First consider what happens when you tenuki and he plays J1, which is atari! :o Beyond that consider what happens if he plays M1 (more stylish!), you answer at L1, and he simply connects at N1. What is your next move? Looks like time for more tsumego to me. :blackeye:

Thanks for the comments. I agree that it would be beneficial for my skill to practice tsumego. However, if I'm honest with myself and with you, I will not do this in the near future. I can make myself play a game a day, I think, but I'm not sure I have the willpower to do more than that for now.

That being said, missing an atari is kind of ridiculous, isn't it? :-)

;B[lp]BL[1379.424]
;W[jn]WL[1114.909]C[Because of R7, M4 and P4 still seem weak. I'll jump out at M6.

He might peep at N5, but I could probably connect at M5 and there'd be aji with P4, and I could attack K6... Let's go for it.]
;B[ln]BL[1370.691]
;W[jl]WL[1108.636]C[Hmm, where in the world do I play? M8 feels natural, but it helps his stones more than me I feel. I'm not super weak...

;W[cm]WL[1098.777]C[C5 is my intuition, but then it feels like there would be weakness around 3-3. It's not solid. I could play C9, but then it makes it natural for him to jump out and get closer to connection with K6 group...

I guess I will try to just be solid in the corner soas to not help him much.]
;B[cp]BL[1309.497]

I haven´t read all of these self-commented games, but I´m really enjoying them so far!

Minor note: in the game from post 5, his monkey jump at n1 doesn't work - you can still capture the three stones with P2. At move 160 you play P1 and they get away, unless I´m missing something. It was funny to see this sequence starting at black 21 at R5 as it's one of the few moves that I know how to punish, and one which I was told stops happening around 7k.

I guess I'll just approach his corner. Can't be that bad.]

;W[cp]WL[583.143]C[I think Herman from L19 always talked about this kind of example. Basically I don't decde to do D6 or D7, yet. I approach at F17 and see what he does first. Based on that, I decide what to do with the C6 area (if anything).]
;B[fc]BL[575.008]
;W[cf]WL[575.426]C[OK, now it'd be nicer to have a stone at C12 instead of D10, so I'll pick that joseki in bottom left.]

Thanks, daal. I'm enjoying them as well, even though I've lost a few.

Minor note: in the game from post 5, his monkey jump at n1 doesn't work - you can still capture the three stones with P2.


What if he plays P1 in response to P2?

It was funny to see this sequence starting at black 21 at R5 as it's one of the few moves that I know how to punish, and one which I was told stops happening around 7k.


Yes, I was surprised, too.

Since black has captured Q13, M10 and M12 stones are not that important. Therefore, I should threaten L12 to strengthen K14, then come back to strike J17.]

Maybe I can push with G15 and give him shortage of liberties. Then if he tries to cut, I can utilize it to protect.

The gap at :w10: prevents White for cutting you off. Black connects at "a" next and reduces the center at the same time. Black is still in the game. If White "a" instead of 10, Black plays atari at "b", White has to capture at "c" and Black connects at 10, capturing White's center stones.


I just had time to look at this sequence more in depth, and it's pretty beautiful. Thanks again for sharing.
