KGS Post-Mortem: martinled[16k] vs. Phoon[19k?]

Game in SGF

Automatch paired me with martinled, a 16th kyu player. The game started well; I was playing quickly and he was responding adeptly. However, he slowly outmatched me, and I semi-resigned at move 158.

One move turned it from a close match to a blowout, and that was move 169. I had written the A11 dango off as dead, so I tried to protect two other stones by playing at A7. If I had played at A8 or A9, the lump would have lived. That was approximately a 25-point error.

On the bright side, I now have a solid rank: 20k.
