Hello,

So in this game, I had been working on using shapes to move around the board. Eventually, I lost track of my weaknesses which is my usual concern. Please feel free to share your input it will be greatly appreciated.

I decided to use gokibitz as a platform for commentary because its the only website that I'm allowed to use while I'm at work lol.

sorry, I'm bad at gokibitz. maybe you can read the review on your phone? https://online-go.com/review/367655

there are 2 main reasons to play towards the center:

  1. you've sealed your opponent in everywhere and want to make a bunch of points
  2. your opponent is about to seal you in everywhere and you need to at least reduce the center instead of letting them make a bunch of points

both players had access to the center, which means the center will probably end up split in half. it wasn't worth it for either player to play there while there were still beautiful, untouched territory on the sides

otherwise, you played a great game with 2 tactical errors at moves 102 and 164. but as you play more, you'll develop a better sense for these sorts of dangers, so I wouldn't focus too much on them
