Review by: Cowabunga
reading mistake, should have played this.
i did this for future ko threat that I never manifested.
im way too flustered at this point, my mental fatigue really illustrates my embarrassment at my current ability to play.
the slide at c18 feels punishable but I just dont see how to yet. I need to play with this to see how to exploit this.
apparently, this far into the game o18 is overwhelmingly big, enough so that this move by blk loses 10.5 pts.
this move by wht loses 10 pts roughly. a more appropriate move is o2 but if you dont see that move then e17 is fine.
this big move remains unplayed for such a long time ai gets rather upset with both players.
so apparently this is how you handle this, giving black sente to approach top left seems op for blk but white can approach bottom right securing right side?
this move feels like an overextension but ai says its not bad. technically the reason i dont see this more is bc r3 is better.
i have no way of getting back into the game so im cutting the review short here.
