Oof, that resonated with me on a spiritual level.

(Assuming you're playing white) I commend you for passing and not connecting at 7 yourself. As Yuan Zhou said about Go Seigen (paraphrased): "Go Seigen didn't just care about winning, he cared about finding out the truth."

Regardless of whether that actually was Go Seigen's mindset, it is one that I respect :bow:

It wasn't just Go Seigen. When I learned go in Japan, I was taught that the purpose of reading was not to win, but to discover the truth.

Yes, I was White and it was even a won game ^^

The curious thing is, I did read that :b7:-cut from the beginning but I totally missed the atari with his corner group. I also totally missed that I could atari and capture other stones without any snapback worries.

I guess I'm a bit wiser now?

When Bill says it's good to be consistent, I don't think he meant like that. ;-)
