My first self-review.

This is bad, hopefully it's not a total failure. It looks as though I've just gone through different scenarios where both of the players are equally bad, and ended up a lot like many of my games with lower or similar ranks than myself. But I think I managed to learn something from this, although I don't yet really know what it is. It's a funny thing when you sort of get it, but yet don't, although maybe some sub-conscious element is still working overtime to crack the answers.


At least I think I now know how I can find and review some of the errors in my games. That is, going them through after every or so game and go through the situations again and try different ways to play. Perhaps it will eventually work out and everything falls into place. I hope. Well, without further ado, here's the review:

attack at the corner I might have had better chance keeping it by \
answering P3 instead.]

I have a feeling I might have done it a bit better, but I have been having some distraction in a form of a four year old running around and climbing all over me so this will have to do for now. See ya soon! gg! ^^
