Looks like |16.k7 would have been much better

Also looks like |26.f21 would have been better, but I'm not sure there isn't some way around it

Or K7
16.k7 17.k6 18.j5 19.l8 20.l4 21.p7

If a move looks like a winner for you and a loser for me, find a different and better move for me. Play my side like you plan to win. Don't stick to one line. Try different moves. Only eliminate a move after you've played it and tried every which way to continue with the "bad" move. Often there is another line that will grant better results.

Don't assume you have to complete the bridge when challenged. Look at this move 7:
1.d22 2.j15 3.n14 4.n10 5.q11 6.q9 7.n8
It accomplishes the same block but now you have a wider base through the middle. The whole purpose of my move to N-8 was to set up the left side and it worked. Might not have worked if you had a wider base in the middle.
