I want to play osu again.
I should actually attempt seriously to study then.
Lost to a 4k on igs because of something dumb and then I decided I wanted to kill him when he rematched me and I did. I got the 20 games on igs going 12/8 and it puts me at 5k.
I made 3k kgs; if my opp didn't give me free pts that would've been a half point win instead of 4.5; I gave away so mich of the bottom in influence holy shit. HOW CAN I BE EXPECTED TO BEAT 2k and 3k!? 4 kyus are uuuuuuuugh
I was winning against True the entire time at 10h, thrn I thought I had made a mistake and died; I didn't read far enough to know I was okay so I resigned. Rip

I played 2 games and won!!!!
I tried to kill the G5 group and propably could have done it if I knew any better maybe?????
Wall building wars. The middle left was mad.
Wtf was black doing in that second game
He insisted on making huge straight lines
That surround almost no points of territory. Middle sure looks big, huh? Ahahahahahxaxaxaxa
At the ddk level you can so just force them to make their points in the middle and they end up overconcentrated as shit trying to hold on to "their" points.

Now you can automatch; I auggest +- 1 rank
I got a match. I had to give him 2 stone handicap but we soon found out that he was ways better propably. Also he lost the upper left corner due to easy mistake of not counting the liberties or something. He was absolutely winning that fight(in my opinion) but decided to play tenuki after losing one too many liberties. I still don't know how I couldn't win the middle battle though. I thought I had a good advantage there at first.
This was my third game. The other 2 were just insta loss and they were like level 19-20 or something
and mukku is best techer/helpper
White 3 - This isn't a common approach to hoshi - you want to play O17 or R14 - a knight's move away from it. Other moves exist but that's besides the point.
White 5 - If you had approaches normally, this would be a great opportunity to play R14 as a double approach, but I cant' find a followup move for your White 3.
White 11 - Bad. D6 is the shape vital point and black shouldn't have played B5 in the first place. Black should D6 now.
White 17 - Sadly by playing tenuki you're giving black the opportunity to make ar really nice attack on the c6 stones. If white had played F8 at least black would be separated from his corner group.
White 21 - I would probably E16 here.
W35 - Usually when attached, it becomes urgent to respond directly. Say a hane at G3 or a nobi at G4. Honestly I don't know what white should do at this point but playing H11 to threaten to capture b's top group on a large scale is an idea.
White 39 - Too thin, play N3. It's 2 spaces from one stone, 3 from two, 4 from three etc. An approach at O3 is also an idea because it can combine a somewhat thin extension from your two stones with an approach.
White 41 - Very bad. You don't want to go down, you want to jump to M5 and head towards the centre of the board.
White 47- Slow, black captures this stone in gote and you're going to be fine
White 57- E18 better.
White 75 - Play E12 please.
White 77 - Not needed
White 85 -Can be at H11 first to flatten black; this way he expands bigger.
White 89 - You can attempt F10 now to cut black because the G9 loose ladder doesn't work.
White 93- H14 marginally better?
White 99 - You should respond directly to black's last move
White 107 - White doesn't have much hope left so I'm ending it here.
This game went badly because you responded to C6 badly and played a tenuki that allowed your opponent to build a much larger area on the bottom. Besides that, black got a lot of points from you by saving his stones on the left hand side when you didn't play F12.
