The next level of difficulty is coming

I won most of my recent games at a strength of 29k after adjusting the handicaps. I can reasonably expect to start losing more games as I try to advance further. That's how I would expect the natural learning cycle to play out (unless I was some natural Go prodigy).

Foiled! Lost the lower-right corner.

I encountered a strong beginner by the name of ggtesada (now 28k?). I lost our even match by 17.5 moku. It wasn't a bad loss but I really should have played a tenuki earlier in the game to secure my territories. ggtesada is from Incheon, South Korea, and has a short but formidable looking record on KGS.
