Beginner Game Sample 5 / Part 3

Moves 111 to 120  

Orcun: Can someone explain me what happened? :) Really!

Charles B6 is a mistake: must be at W7 and then Black may keep any loss small.

AE (Andre Engels): agreed. B10 is also bad, not doing much (probably not anything) useful.

Moves 121 to 130  

W5: Orcun: As I have said in a previous game, I don't like to respond a mistake quickly. Why not W5 at 7 which is the killer? I don't really know but B6 at 7 saves the group but things get complicated in corner, but not too dangerous actually. I would not play this against a human opponent.

AE: So why do you play it now? There's no reason not to just take the money and run.

B6: Orcun: Should definetely be at 7.

unkx80: Strictly speaking, B6 should be at a. You know why?

Orcun: You are right. B6 at a is better. But it does no good after B5 at 7.

W7: Orcun: I already was not interested in the corner, I believe white should resign now ( GNU Go does not have the ability to resign right now ) . Am I right?

AE: I assume you mean that black rather than white should resign, no?

Orcun: Oooops. Or may be white should resign not to make black more sad.

Orcun: You may not comment from now on but I would still appreciate it since there are still moves I am not sure of. I am not very good at the finnishing moves. Thank you anyway.

Moves 131 to 140  

W7: AE: a is now 3 points with double sente (black threatens to kill the group on the left, white to capture three stones, so it should be played by either as soon as possible.

B8: AE: Bad. This action removes the possibilities that black has at b. It's probably too hard for the computer to read this out, but black should nevertheless try, given that he's far behind.

Moves 141 to 150  

B2: AE: As noted before, this is double sente. However, black should continue with B4 at W5, followed by white 4 - this is one point worse.

B6: AE: Another double sente move.

vst:Black at b is a huge move.

Moves 151 to 160  

W1: Orcun: Was it too safe? a seems the better option now.

AE: W1 is correct. Because the black stones to the left are captured anyway, this move is as many points as a, and it is safer.

Orcun: Yes, as you mention in the next part, I make use of W1.

W3: AE: Probably slightly better at 4.

W9: Orcun: I shold have considered b first. Still it may not be good.

AE: b looks like quite thin shape; I think 10 would have been better.

Moves 161 to 170  

W3: AE: Small.

W9: AE: 10 is better.

Orcun: I was so concerned about connecting my groups. Don't ask why? There is no reason, just to make white+circle more meaningful maybe, or just to see if I could.

unkx80: B10 is wrong also, as it induces the double atari at a. B10 should be played at a.
