A different game. Longest I've ever played.

Last night ardesh and I played what can be called fun, weird and long friendly game. Actually it was the longest one either of us have ever played. The game I had with JachUGAN a couple nights ago was also long, but I don't think it lasted this long, can't really remember. We were just too tired then and that turned out pretty weird.

But here's a game I can actually be somewhat proud of. Weirdness comes from the fact it was a reverse colour, reverse komi match. So we had to take away 13 points from my score when finished. But as it was a free game it didn't matter that much anyway. We also played without time limit. First move is a pass for black.

Below is the cleaned up version of the game for you enjoyment:

ardesh [10k\]: thats what nigiri is for :D
ardesh [10k\]: your strategy was based oin being black?
AmbyR00 [13k\]: I can try it being white, but I don't know if I succeed\
:)

ardesh [10k\]: i know :D
ardesh [10k\]: i think you were expecting r6 or q6
AmbyR00 [13k\]: that would probably be the common answer
ardesh [10k\]: yes
ardesh [10k\]: but u can decide to tenuki]

territory on the right]
;B[df]C[AmbyR00 [13k\]: and a strong wall too :)
ardesh [10k\]: ya... and much territory at the lower side
ardesh [10k\]: i think you lead with at least 30 points]
;W[dh];B[fd];W[ee];B[ff];W[ef];B[fe]C[AmbyR00 [13k\]: so now that linux\
"just works" I've become somewhat lazy about that nerd thing... geek \
is a title that actually suits me better now :)
ardesh [10k\]: hehe
AmbyR00 [13k\]: I just hate walls
AmbyR00 [13k\]: maybe I should've cut to the right

AmbyR00 [13k\]: I just can't see what will happen
ardesh [10k\]: i have trouble too :D
ardesh [10k\]: its too complicated
AmbyR00 [13k\]: I could get two stones, but what will I win with that?
ardesh [10k\]: O_o
AmbyR00 [13k\]: can't see
ardesh [10k\]: u cant get two stones :D
ardesh [10k\]: u mean m and n 16?
AmbyR00 [13k\]: of course I can
AmbyR00 [13k\]: two is logical
ardesh [10k\]: mhhh
AmbyR00 [13k\]: you wouldn't give me four

AmbyR00 [13k\]: you just want me to relax so that you can win when I'm \
not paying attention ;)
AmbyR00 [13k\]: haha
ardesh [10k\]: nope
ardesh [10k\]: you are really leading :D
AmbyR00 [13k\]: well... let's see...
ardesh [10k\]: by about 10 or 20 points
ardesh [10k\]: cant say yet
ardesh [10k\]: theres still too much open
ardesh [10k\]: and my yose is quite strong
ardesh [10k\]: so i suppose it will be a close result :D
AmbyR00 [13k\]: heh

(There were some misclicks in the original so I cut them out, you can see the SGF linked earlier for the dirty original.)

I'm really glad I could share that. I did like this game and I think ardesh is a plenty strong player, I wish I can play against him many more times.

Now I think I'm going to relax and take my son out to the park. See ya! ^^ /gg
