To grasp the opportunity...

At arround move 137 white did not grasp a opportunity to attack black...
i just found out about this move while writing this review today.
This time the review is with a lot of comments and variations.

I think your move at 21 was a great idea. I think something you might've want to do is to jump at E7 first since the C9 white group is still weak, and then switch directions like you were saying.

I think move 25 is ajikeshi. Since you were planning on sacrificing the stone, you should've taken sente to playing an extension to continue the idea of using the shimari. The poke only helps to make white thick and removes a forcing move at C10 later on.

The variation where Black cuts off white at K2 and K5 is okay for Black, but I don't think Black gains from the exchange since he looses the bottom and will have a hard time making points with his his influence.

Good game though! Glad you won!

Thank you! ;•)
Maybe you are right with 24 Ajikeshi, ... my thought was to make the aji more usefull with this move ... but it was a silly idea :)

VEry interesting that you pointed out, that maybe the variation where black cuts white off is not that good for black ... i did not thought in this direction!
