It could have been better.

I seriously need to learn to fight, my ability read isn't getting better if I always feel scared like I did in this game. Ultimately, there were several holes I left for the opponent to exploit just by playing overly cautious game and not having guts to attack where it would have counted. From the very first moves I caved in and saw black gaining major influence while my own grew smaller and smaller.

I spare the commentary, since this was such a embarrassing match. Ok, the guy I played against was strong, but yes even he did leave openings, though shamefully I never even tried to go after them. Not like I even saw them in game. Yeah, and B2 was scary when I realized it reading the comments after the game, I wonder why black didn't use it to his advantage.

There's a saying though according which a loser gains more than the winner. So maybe I did. We can hope so.

Here's the game:

(W) AmbyR00 16k vs. (B) AkinfeevK 2k

I'll be on KGS today night, hoping to play at least a couple of league games. See you there! /gg ^^

Update: Didn't have a chance to play even one. Maybe it's just a good thing, since I am a bit sleep deprived after last night. I was caught up arguing politics in the Middle East. So I've not slept too much. I'll be heading to bed now, so I can recoup a bit.
