Last game for the evening
I couldn't sleep and I blame it on the two Red Bull beverages that I drank to help me with my late-night work.
wenzi (22k?) from Singapore was online so we played a 13x13 game that turned into a cliffhanger for me. I felt as though I should have resigned about three-quarters of the way through; but I played to the end and won by 8.5 moku.
My focus was so poor and I almost didn't notice that a large cluster of his stones were vulnerable.
Perhaps it's also time for me to get used to counting territory while in the game.
wenzi reads his opportunities well and had sente for most of this game. As you can see from the topmost image, I lost 10 stones in his territory. Those are the remains of what should have been a base in the lower-left corner. He choked my positions and eroded my walls.
I probably won't be much online for the next two days. I need some rest from both work and Go. Midnight of Friday is also when the next Harry Potter book releases so ChiyoChan, my daughter, and I will be at our local bookstore's release party.
