Mirror Go

Mirror Go  

Is my B1 good? I think so.

Basically, I think this position is interesting in that it shows how one can counter mirror go. However, playing Black, I did go on to lose, after White successfully invaded the lower left centre area :)



I realised Black B1 was wrong straight away. In the post-game analysis, we decided that if B1 was going to be played on the left side, it should probably have been played at a. Then a higher-dan player suggested that White should then leave the left side alone because there was no way to profitably attack Black a, and instead make Black pay something for leaving behind the weakness at b, specifically by playing White c.

I'm not sure whether Black should have played a or protected the bottom group, nor am I sure how it would have been best to defend the bottom group if I had decided to.

Bill: Bd is joseki.
