As i mentioned before („To conquer one’s weaker self: Starting from Zero“) after i have realized that i have cultivated soo many bad habbits in my go i really tried to change that.
And it was very motivating that i somehow could beat a dan player in a even game in the ASR league, just right after i really thought a lot about this „starting from zero“ again.
As i showed in my review, black, could have won this game, or better to say, had good chances to win it, if i would not have killed a big group. So my go is not suddenly dan level play, my opponent jsut underestimated the danger, made a mistake. But anyway, i`m sure every kyu player is happy when a victory against a dan player is achieved, and so this was a win with a good timing in order to regain full motivation after some more or less very self critical thoughts about my go.
I often mentioned the danger of thinking like: „oh i won, i must have played a good opening and a good middle game“ or things like that… i think black had a better position, and maybe it was again a somehow dangerous situation for me (bad habit of me = risk loving) to trying to make live with this weak center group. Anyway, … i felt i was playing better in terms of thinking more concentrated and deeper about tactics and strategy, even while my strategy maybe was not very sucessfull and i was just lucky to in the end kill the group. If i would not have killed it, black maybe would have won the game.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this interesting game, and my review.
