the last game.

the last game.

And them i had my last game. With a 9 kyu. After the opening i had less territory and terr influence. Here, i thought, the game had just started and had already ended. I kept on playing with the aim of connecting my groups and the spirit of learning something nevertheless. For obvious topological reasons having me connect meant that he was going to be disconnected. I also kept on menacing to kill one of his groups just to make sure that i had the time to connect. From half of the game onward my adversary became very nervous. He even got up to smoke. While i did some tai ji as his time was rolling. Then he made huge effort to get extra territory with the white group in the lower right corner. I knew that group to be alive. I also knew that he was winning by much so i could not understand his aggressiveness. In any case i kept my ground. Then i looked better and i realised that his lower right group was not automatically alive. Suddenly i knew that he also had not read it properly or he would have played in a different way. That move i sweated, waiting for his move to decide the game. He plays. He still had not seen it. I play and win. The rest of the game were details.
