Hi Everyone!

I'm in dire need of a review. I'd especially like to know how I could have helped my right group live.

Thank you.

You tried to save the upper side group that was very weak. Doing so forced play down to your right side group, weakening it.

Keys here :

  1. Avoid weak groups as much as possible - 2 or more will be a bad idea
  2. Sacrifice what you cannot save - gain from threats to save
  3. Try to step back and see the whole board - how groups relate to each other - as much as possible

Does this make sense?
