One possible continuation was |8.r15 9.s14 10.p16 11.r16 12.r20 13.p17 14.m20
Another was |8.q12 9.p13 10.p10 11.o9 12.s13 13.n11 14.m17
or |8.q19 9.p17 10.o20

Black had lots of choices here.

Thanks. I see what you mean. I am thinking about it... I see the first two continuations now. Re: the last one, how would black respond to |8.q19 9.p17 10.o20 11.n18 ?

And would this reply for be correct for black: |8.r15 9.s14 10.p16 11.r16 12.r20 13.q18 14.p20 ?

|8.q19 9.p17 10.o20 11.n18 12.l19 and now 13.k19 14.k21, or 13.m18 14.m17 15.l20 16.n19

As far as the local battle is concerned, your second line looks good for black. HOWEVER, when considering the entire board, I have to say I did not necessarily provide the best lines for either sides in these variations. For example white's best response to |8.q19 might be 9.L18 which threatens R17 or J11. I was just trying to show you that my Q15 was not a local win. Or white could have played J11 immediately in all of these lines.

So for example |8.r15 9.s14 10.p16 11.r16 12.r20 13.q18 14.p20 15.k17 16.m17 17.j11 18.L6 and the battle continues elsewhere.
