Finally, Jia Cheng, 6-dan Singapore Weiqi Player, aka: supertjc, had his free time to review Xinwen’s game against Philip. The first part of the review was against the joseki.

The fundamental joseki 1 pattern was played out during the game except that Xinwen omitting the atari-move at “9”. Which was strongly commented by Jia Chenge that the move “9” is a definite and absolute. White would get attacked by black otherwise.

More explanation is commented in the reviewed game.

However as for more commentary and variation, please download the reviewed game. Overall, Jia Cheng commented Xinwen’s play style was too conservative and not using thickness to attack sufficiently. Thus, Xinwen knowing problem of himself, eventually felt relieved…
