In this game
is a strong threatening move - it has good connection to the h7-l11 line because of p11 (example: |
) and to the g16-l16 line because of r19 (example: |
). To avoid this double threat i needed to put 25th peg somewhere on the bottom side.
Going back to the
I thought that I have to connect h15 to the bottom and I played
. When I saw
i said to myself "oh God, what have I done? I should have played
to prevent l16 from connecting the left edge". I was very lucky that
was strong enough to maintain the bottom (h13 or p18).
is wiser. It would make the game much more complicated.
What do you think about p7 (or p18)? I find it to be a very good move. Especially in this game I saw it's potential.

it looks essentially the same as the game:
Your defense on the right side was very nice. I missed the idea of two 5-2 patterns in sequence like that: P7-R12-T15. It just holds everything. I'll have to try to watch for that in the future. With regards to the opening move P7, I still haven't come to a conclusion.

Um, I meant P7-R12-T17 of course.

Ohh, you are right. So after your
the fight on the right side was settled. I didn't mean to play two 5-2 pattern. It was coincidence. My idea was to play 4-2 pattern from your peg (P15). You coudn't play T15, so I find it very good for me. Maybe I am wrong but I think that (generally) 4-2 pattern with opponent peg (P15 and T17) is really good if he can't put a peg 2 lines from mine (T15).
