27th February, 2010, was rather quite lively that Alex Chan, Ming Sui, an rare player and a new guest attended the Japan Club.

White played at keima approach 12. It is also possible for White to play lightly at a, or invading directly at b. Due to the fact, C is available for later digging purposes.

However at this point, it is quite difficult to judge (Xinwen’s opinion) whether White 12 is good move because of existing tengen and excellent framework of Black.

At this stage, White 20 and 22 was light and fast-pace strategy; certainly going for land profit instead of development for future. However in figure 2, Black touched up with the exchange to thicken the wall was favoring for Xinwen (Xinwen likes thickness).

Then an invasion at 32 for White. After White dug, White had hard time to live in the center ended up resigned.

Xinwen’s opinion regarding the game is that, White was quite rash in destroying the moyo but not in a good way.

Certainly, playing go, you may keep it simple – crazy stuff comes later (Middle to Yose).
