I am trying to keep a checklist of things I am working on. This isn't necessarily a recommended checklist for other people as much as a list of what I feel are my own weaknesses. I'll adjust these as I feel I have fixed certain things or discover new weaknesses.

  1. Play near the weakest group.
  2. Read at least five moves ahead before playing--don't play on impulse.
  3. Watch for shortage of liberties.
  4. Protect cutting points efficiently.
  5. Play lightly (consider sacrifice).
  6. Remember the basics of capturing stones (nets, ladders, loose ladders, snapback, connect and die, double atari).
  7. Play away from strength.
  8. Play double sente as quickly as possible.
  9. Consider tenuki--don't respond unless the move is `actually` forcing.
