So, ready for another „before and after“ (click for info about this series) game.
As you might have read in my last post, i`m having some kind of a „losing streak“ and it feels suddenly like i lost 2 stones. But it is ok, even when this is going to continue for a while, it will not be forever… but anyway, of course i wan`t to overcome this, and play more good go „again“ (of course it is questionable if i ever did, but let`s say more good „5 kyu Go“ then).
I think it has a lot to do with the rest of my life at the moment, a lot of new projects and perspectives, things to do, not very much sleep… but my desire to play go is, while all these other things are happening, very strong. And i feel like my way of playing is
- fragile, i try obscure invasions to often, and my groups getting killed
- very risky, even from times to times kind of megalomaniac
- to emotional and not based on accurate reading
When i was thinking about my (12 games? without any real win, just somebody rsigned every time when we mett in automatch) loosing streak, i often thought about „The Go Challenge“. It was a very nice idea, and i planed to play up to 5 games „Lee Changho Style“ not saying that i can play like Lee Changho of course, just what i`m trying to say is that i try to play 1. safe and 2. not agressive here.
So i maybe will make this another game for the „Go Challenge“, try not to „get all, do all, kill all“ (and while doing this, playing really bad and double kyu digit style moves 😀 )
So the „before“ is:
- the goal is not to win here, it is to play safe and not agressive
- not giving the win easy away at the same time , playing quick and solid … and thinking „oh, the goal was not to win, i played solid, i did it“ … still try to play a good game, but without the usual fighting attitude.
- trying to take the burden of having kind of a „losing streak“ / problems with my go easy, after all it is just a game 🙂
Here comes the „after“

After the game i played a ASR game against Rebus (Kgs 4 kyu) … i missed a endgame killing move… but would have lost even when i would have prevented it.
Here is the game. ( i did not plan in any way to play „Lee Changho style“ in this game … )
