Jennie Shen Workshop!

Thanks to goddess, I found out about the Jennie Shen, 2p Go Workshop. Hmmmmm, that sounded good, but the question was whether I could get logistics figured out?

I spent a few days planning and plotting and suckering friends into taking care of my Oggettes. Things were looking good. Yesterday I felt things had fallen into place enough that I could actually commit and officially sign up! Wow!

I just need to find myself a place to sleep over there still, but I am confident I will be able to do so.

Very much looking forward to it!

Dangerous Move

Followup on the dangerous move. This was the board position, where A was an unexpectedly dangerous move. Well, unexpected by me, I am sure stronger players would have seen it before they played it.

White can probe:

If lower right corner wasn't there, this ladder would be quite disastrous:

To minimize damage, black has this sequence:

This is big profit for white. Ouch!
Just thought it was interesting position, during the game it seemed such an easy thing to hane at A, not really reading all the followups, but assuming white would submissively answer and follow me around. Bad bad bad bad habit.
