FWIW, I have a story. ;)



Worst play?
Solid connection at B-04.

Well, I played badly but not *that* badly

Your story is mostly what happened in the game, except that the bottom left was the result of an avalanche variation plus a bad tenuki in favor of the push up in the upper right, which was the worst play, I think. Also, your "congratulations" was spot on: too late did I realize capturing 3 stones was gluttonous.

If we allow thinking outside the box, and going back to the very first position:

1. On the "balance of mistakes" theory, Black has had two stones captured (= wasted) and on the right has been pushed down to the second line.

2. On the "equilibrium theory", White has more stones on the crucial large X diagonals - and perhaps more importantly seems well poised to control even more (and therefore will have the flexibility to control the game strategically).

On either theory White should be considered to have a significant advantage (in pro terms of being able to lead a favourable position to a favourable conclusion). Putting the two together makes it a slam dunk.
