I want to get strong at Go and also watch myself thinking. I am interested in observing how my thinking strategies change as I get stronger.
I have just realized the importance of calmness and good attitude while playing. A few minutes ago, I played a game where a big group was alive: I analysed that as being dead (indeed, had it not been for outside liberties, it was dead). I realized that it was alive only when the opponent filled an outside liberty. I got quite frustrated and realized I had no hope of winning and resigned. Later, when going over the game, I realized that there was a second outside liberty --- had I not become frustrated, the game would turn out quite differently.
