|22.n8 seems obviously better, and I'm not sure how I failed to play it. I think maybe I was just discouraged.

I don't think it would have changed the outcome, however.

If Maciej plays 23.o12 anyway, then I was thinking of:

24.r7 25.r9 26.p7 27.s5 28.q5 29.s7 30.u4 31.u6 32.s4 33.u2

Later, I thought of:

24.p4 25.s5 26.r5 27.u6 28.s8 29.r9 30.q7 31.t8. I was kind of relieved that didn't work, since I'd already missed my chance.

|22.n8 23.o12 24.r7 25.r9 26.p7 27.s5 - this ladder chase is unstable. You can't just continue it. It ends with 28.r6. If you try to continue it, the other guy wins: 28.q5 29.s7 30.u4 31.t5.

In the bigger picture, Maciej has a strong j10 threat on the left side, and would probably abandon the upper right battle pretty quickly to play that.

My point of view was: 22.n8 23.o12 24.r7 25.k10 and i wanted to connect top edge this way: 26.i9 27.n7 or 26.q9 27.i9

Thanks both. I definitely should have known about the pattern Alan points to, but I didn't really think n8 was going to work across the top. If it had, I guess there was an earlier point when I could have played it and gained an advantage.
