Game 9 – New Forest

This game with Lukas was played over a week ago, and it gave me much to think about. Although every game of Go is unique, Lukas said that this one’s feel was different from previous games. This happened to be the first game I played since moving to a new city and starting a new job. Coincidence? I think not.

I made the decision to play the 5-4 point. Life began as I leapt into a different forest in search of a new species of Go.

This is how I would like to approach the game from now on: trekking through unknown woods without fear.

In the game below, commented by me with some of Lukas’ suggestions, I played black, and Lukas won by 20.5 points.
