This is the only game I got a comment for so far, so, of course, I showed the game I lost...

(It was also the only game Benjamin lost at that event - see his diary)

Black: Some upper D-class insei
White: Benjamin Teuber
Time: 10 minutes & 30sec/move byoyomi
Result: Black wins by resignation

Comment by Kenmochi-Sensei

Moves 1 to 10  
Moves 11 to 20  
Moves 21 to 30  

5: Too close.

7: Playing on the left side is bigger.

10: Very bad. Should play like in Variation 1.

Variation 1  
Moves 31 to 40  

1: Now White is heavy.

3: Has to play hane at a

4 and 6: These make Black stronger, so it's better not to play them, as White maybe wants to attack with b later instead.

Moves 41 to 50  

1: Bad shape. Connecting at c is better.

2: After 34 and are 36 played, this invasion is no longer fun.

3: Small. Better around d.

6: Very bad, as it just cuts two strong groups. Has to be at e. After a black move at 6, white would just play d, as the two stones left of 6 aren't worth defending then.

8/10: Should also be at e.

9: Looks a bit slack.

Moves 51 to 60  
Moves 61 to 70  

4: The white stones become weak now. Probably it's better to play like in Variation 2

Variation 2 (a-e=11-15)  

Variation 2: White sacrifices some stones to get thickness and sente and takes the free corner afterwards. Probably the game is close then.

Moves 71 to 80  

2: Aji-keshi. Just 4 is better.

Moves 81 to 90  

2: Maybe the losing move. f would be the Ko-Threat. Now white comes under heavy attack, but even after he lives he is behind.

Moves 91 to 100  
Moves 101 to 110  

4 and 7: ko

Moves 111 to 120
