You might feel this way too
I was inclined to do a cartoon about how I briefly felt last night but it seems that Russ Williams had already beat me to the punch in his series, KoFight Club.
And so, one artist tips his hat to the other ...
KGS rematch with Shugyosha (27k?) who I had played back on June 30th on IGS.
Shugyosha plays clean games. In the two we played and the two I observed, I didn't see any of the desperate dogfighting that's more common in the lower kyus (a practice that even I sometimes engage in).
IMHO, he had a bit of an edge in the beginning and had established a nice moyo. My response was:
- Defending my upper and upper-right region per yoyoma's (2k) guidance.
- Trying to build an area from the lower-left corner to the center using a sequence of keimas.
Incidentally, I received an inquiry about the goban that I have been recently using to illustrate my games. I use Gilles Arcas's Drago for these because it has an Export Position feature which very quickly creates a JPEG to my specified size. This means I don't have to do screen-captures and edit them in Photoshop.
Those of you who have been following my blog know that I've been getting a lot of good use out of Gilles's application for reviewing my games and training on Go problems (see recommendation number 5 of that latter post).
