I (2k) played white against a 4k player in the Affensprung turnament in Hamburg. 29th to 31th of May.
Kjeld - I was thinking of playing this move as a pincer against , but I didn't like Black to have another move in the lower left corner.
Andy What is the idea behind ? Is the correct direction of play from ? Why place all on the third line?
Kjeld - I don't like to play high if I have low, and the idea is that Black is high on the left side, so I make sure to make it harder for him to invade by being low, and use and as influence to reduce Black's influence.
() - This move was a mistake. I'm still able to connect to two groups in the corner with the serie a-f, but just barely. () should have been one to the left at c.
51 - I was very happy when he made this move. Black has a small corner, but White has a very good outside influence along both sides.

221 - This was actually not a ko threat. In the game analysis, I realized this, but I'm not unhappy with the outcome of the game.
