Not to rain on anyone's parade but as go is a two-player-game Black's play in the handicap game was a direct result of White's play. And as far as handicap go goes, White's play was highly unimaginative (and as a similar handicap player myself, I know what I talk about :p).

Taking gote with no follow-ups on multiple occaisons, fixing shapes early and most importantly not posing any difficulties to Black or even asking questions about groups or connections.

That being said: Black's strategy starting with :b52: was consistently follow-up and worked in the end, kudos to that! And move 156 was certainly a superb find.

By my estimate White managed to catch up one handicap stone by the start of endgame but then ramped up its game heavily and got all the big points to almost caught up the rest of them. Almost meaning Black would have won with at least Komi, anyway (that's my best guess ; )).

Some comments because I do find a couple of noteworthy moves ; )

Another point is that White's O6 group is not secure yet. It is not very weak, but doesn't have eyes yet, so you can harass it a bit, maybe by playing around O10. If you can force the opponent to defend, then you get stones in the center for free, and these stones may be useful later to prepare an invasion or a reduction, or to save another one of your own groups that might be in difficulty later.


The hane at L-06 is also good, as is the eye stealing tesuji at O-08.
