perhaps 5.k16 would have been better

5.k16 6.l14 and black wins

maybe 5.i16 6.l14 7.k15 ?

seems to me that after 5.i16 6.l14 7.k15 black keeps the edge with 8. n13 . To me, your 11. o9 looks like a wasted move, at a time when you could not afford one. mc

so, perhaps 11. q8 ? here's a line: 12.q6 13.u6 14.s7 15.u8 16.v8 17.w9 18.t7 19.v7 20.v6 21.w5

11.q8 12.r10

seems to me like the game is definitely lost after 10.o7 -- and perhaps sooner -- so I was trying to avoid getting there

how about 5.l14 ?

here's one line: 5.l14 6.j19 7.f18 8.g16 9.g15 10.h14 11.f17 12.f13 13.h16 14.i16 15.l18

stepping back one move at a time, if the game is lost at 10. o7 , then let's examine the position at move 9, 8, 7, etc.

since 9. p13 clearly failed to 10. o7 , then go back. 8. n11 looks like it dominates the position for black, so we should try another move 7 instead of 7. n14 . Here, I would propose 7. m12 , since now 8. n11 is completely useless. What does black have now?

I think that going back in the game TOO FAR makes it a completely different game, so I'm only going back as much as seems necessary.

I like 7.m12 -- looks like it leaves black nothing in the center

It looks like white could have won with |11.l9 for example 12.m9 13.m7 14.l11 15.q9 or 14.n9 15.k11 16.m14 17.k15 or 12.l10 13.n10 14.k7 15.o8 or 12.k7 13.k6 14.m8 15.n10 16.i8 17.s8 18.r10 19.q9 20.q12 21.k11

But instead of N11, |8.m12 looks better for black. For example 9.p13 10.o7 11.s8 12.q7 13.u7 14.s11

|7.m12 8.n10 might be better for black, but there are lots of variations.
