Ice Hi,

I would like a lecture like the topic says. I often find myself trying to kill groups that have 0 eyes and no way to live. Then i usually mess things up and my opponent manages to live.

I dont mean life and death, but "how to keep yourself alive and finish the opponents group by a 100%"

I got the idea from this game. I was black. At move 98 I had to make the choice how to attack the groups so that when they die, they die 100%, and if they dont die, my territory wont get hurt. It looks like at least the bottom white group cant live no matter what. but then i got killed instead...

Ice i meant actually that later the bottom group was dead. Now it doesnt look so dead

Ice sorry to explain this in such a complicated way :D

Guo Juan To kill a group is not just kill its eyes. I think more important is to defend your own shapes. If we have a weak group, there is no way to kill. A good feeling about shapes is necessary.
