The WBaduk Challenge


As i mentioned before i have some trouble at the "WBaduk go server" with getting out of the double digit kyu area.  Actually i`m 16 kyu there, while i`m  6 Kyu at Kgs. Maybe you think i`m a sandbagger ... but i`m not ... i started with my KGS rank there and fall all the way to 17 kyu!
But i don`t want to write about the reason(`s) here again ... if you are interested in this topic you can read older posts here:
truthandgo: dont-think-just-use-the-force
truthandgo: loosing-at-wbaduk-is-fun
From now on i will publish here on this blog absolute every game i play at WBaduk ... and write as many reviews about them as possible.  It is so frustrating that i`m only 16 kyu at this Go server, that at the moment it is more important for me to become something like 8 Kyu at Wbaduk than  5 or 4 Kyu at KGS.
I will concentrate fully on this goal and maybe from now on you like to follow this fight between me and some double digit WBaduk kyu players ;-)
Now following here are the first two games, i think i played them about 2 weeks ago. Until now, i have not played at WBaduk again, but i will start again today or tomorrow.

"The one with the closing door to the center" 
In this game i was white. I won by resignation. After black invaded the top i felt like i`m going to loose the game... but a few moves later, black allowed me to build a huge moyo i at the bottom and in the center ... and i could invade the left side (too) easily. I did not played very well but my opponent did not punish my mistakes good enough.

"The one with the ignored ko threat"
I was white again, i won by 12,5 points.
This game was very interesting, because there where a lot of fights. After white killed 3 black stones with W38 i felt that the opening was good for me. Maybe W54 was a mistake because after B55 and B59 black has somehow sealed in white a bit. But after W68 white has limited blacks influence in the center ... but now white has two weak groups ... after W98 there are several weak groups ... some black, some white...
The Ko in the low right corner is game decisive. After W188 i thought there is not much chance for the big black group in the center to survive, but after the cut of B197 and after W200 (i think this was my biggest mistake in this game) the situation changed dramatically. Black can live and killed a important white group in the top left corner. But there was still the ko! After black ignored the ko-threat at W260 i could kill a black group in the center... this gave white the victory.

strong spirit!

moves 58 and 60 in first game are c00l :)
and i like this funny one-line-lower-than-usual-but-who-cares stuff with B6-B9-A4-A3

I think the gap is not that big between the 2 servers. maybe you just met sandbaggers throughout your journey.

@Biondy : that sounds like a good explanation ... i see a lot of 16 kyus there with thousands of games played ... at kgs i think people are not 16 kyu any longer if they played 2000 games!? But i think there are psycological reasons as well ... i think i have to win if my opponent is 16 kyu and then i make strange mistakes ... not thinking carefully.
Greetings...

Jenji: thnx ;-)
