Looks like I shouldn't have played Achilles at 5.r16, because Flemming later surprised me with 8.q149.q1310.p1611.s1412.r20. On looking at it again, I initially thought 13.q18 was a mistake and I should have played |13.s19, but

Well, to be honest a move like 9.q13 is really "naive" to me. When I see the board, this move is like the best way to lose. Your position is probably good until there. Of course after 9.q1310.p16 it's horrible now.

You can see that you have an interesting threat in |9.n14, but I'm not sure if it is correct right now, for instance after |9.n1410.n21 or around there it's maybe not good, need to be analyzed very precisely.

But you have another obvious very strong move in this position |9.h15 It gives you two different threats, h10 and somewhere in the middle to connect with p11, for instance the famous n14. Moreover, black cannot answer |9.h1510.h17 which is not working cause not connected to n17.

|13.s19 14.s18 15.p17 16.o19 17.r21 18.q22 19.t17 20.s21

So, I'm thinking "something else" would have been better, perhaps

|5.s17 6.q16 7.t15 8.r14 9.t13

Maybe your losing move was S7. Instead |7.m8 looks less vulnerable.

Peyrolsaid:But 32.c13 looks better.

Peyrolsaid:Florian Jamainsaid:But of course, maybe there is just one complicated line which makes this still a win for black, so... maybe you're right.
