Kirby, maybe you should play some games against weaker players. Even if you are in bad form, you are still stronger than a lot of people and some wins should boost your confidence.


Thanks, Uberdude. I think that's a good idea. Seems like I forgot how to win and just overplay a lot. Not sure how low of a rank I'd have to play to accomplish this plan, but there's must be some rank between my strength and 30k, right? :-)

If you feel bad about sandbagging, I'll gladly play a few no-handicap games with you, if we can find time.

I'd gladly play you to show you there are still huge differences to my lowly 18kyu ranking :D

Second-to-last AYD game today:



First win since February 19th.

My opponent is a guy that I know from the Seattle Go Center. I've never lost against him in an even game. My guess is that the psychological effect of having not lost to him before overcame the psychological effect of being on a losing streak.

Not sure. Can't say I played well either, but I guess it's nicer to win than to lose.

Last game of the AYD. Going to take a break for awhile now.



I played against the forum's very own Calvin Clark. He resigned, but it's not clear to me that I was ahead at the end of the game. A big mistake in this game was obviously not reading well enough to see that he could kill me on top, and then playing tenuki.

Oh well.

I'm going to practice programming for awhile, and see if I can get better at that. Later, I might come back to go.

I'll resume this journal at that time.
