Jeez, looking at this now after some sleep, I was even luckier than I thought. Even if I live on the left, black just needs what? 40 points in the center to win, perhaps. Seems quite feasible.

It's a 6-stone handicap game so I guess I need some luck, but perhaps I cut things too close.

I played my game for today. I'm a little afraid to play on my "Brian" account, because somehow I got lucky and that got to 4d - seems a bit high, but maybe if I study a bit more, I can try to play as 4d later.

So I decided to play again on my "Kirby" account, which I'm ranking up.

I played white against 2k:

Some highlights...

Position 1
It's probably a bad idea to play here:

Seems better.

Position 2

Black responded well, I think, so I shouldn't have continued here:

I like my enthusiasm, but when something doesn't really work, it doesn't really work. I'm just increasing my loss here, and setting up to lose the game.

I should settle the losses, and be happy.

Position 3
If I *am* going to be stubborn about running to the top, then this seems like a pretty wasted move:

I can't see a result I really like, but this move isn't doing much.

After that, he gave the game to me, so I don't have much to say.

Those are pretty much my main takeaways.

Biggest thing to try to remember is probably to avoid increasing the loss when I have lost out a little bit.

And the house comes tumbling down...

I might be OK if I just play here, though:
