Black might have tried |20.h13 and now 21.g12 would be a mistake: 22.i20 23.k20 24.j14 25.h14 26.h15 27.f15 28.g17 29.e17 30.e20 31.g18 32.h19 33.h20 34.g21 and white might have a draw, but instead white could have played 21.g14 22.g11 23.e13 24.c9 25.d11 26.e8 27.g8

I feel like |9.f10 was the game-winning move. A more ordinary response like |9.i9 would have let 10.i16 work. That looks like a winning position for Black.

Letting the k12 threat linger, playing |8.i16 first, would have probably been the better move, and still looks like a winning position for Black, though it may still be a bit early to be sure.

After |9.f10, 10.i16 is broken by 11.g16: 12.g15 13.f14 14.g20 15.i17 16.j19 17.j20 or 14.h20 15.d19. So Black needed to find something else in the lower left corner for move 10, and apparently |10.h18 isn't it. Is there a winning move 10?

The bot suggests |10.h9 threatening a pincer attack for black on E12 or F13, so instead white plays 11.q11 12.n18 13.d9 14.f13 15.g12 16.i16 and black seems to have an advantage.

H18 was probably black's losing move.
