Here's a game I just finished playing! Do you guys think you could look it over for me? I played white. I think I played pretty solidly, but I tended to play slow moves. Move 38 in particular I think was a mistake. K3 seems to be a better move in that scenario. I was neglectful to my upper left group for too long, and probably deserved to have that die. Thanks in advance

Here is the sgf:


Quick remarks:

:w14: is better at C5. If Black responds with D6, then :w16: at F4 or F3.

:w18: reinforces Black, and in addition, after :b21:, you are surrounded, which is bad. :w18: should be used to split Black into two groups, for instance with D6.

:w36: good! Black is surrounded and Black has to live in gote. (Edit: but there was a better move, see Bill Spight's comment below.)

:w58: maybe not urgent at this point, since you are almost alive. :w58: at P14 would give you more territory (expands your territory while reducing Black's).

Go to :w36: and :w38: for life and death comments. :)

Another one from me.

Lesson to learn from your game: if the enemy seems to play overly aggressively, then play where the enemy neglected to play.

Just one quick comment.
:black:117 is a big mistake, and you didn't have to connect. Instead, White could have cut on the second line for a large reduction. Black can't cut at S14, because after White captures, Black descends, and White fills in, White has 3 liberties vs. Black's 2 liberties.
