Alright. For reasons that could have only sounded good at the time, I invited two people to commentate this game with me. It should be noted this is the only time I did this and with good reason. It's just not possible to stay focused! Was still fun though! So [...]
Automatch hates me. It keeps putting me against 2kyus when I'm trying to rank up. Either way here we go again against the Low Chinese Fuseki.
Ok, this guy opened up quite odd. Not much else to say about this game. He played very strange.

Wow. In all the games I've posted, this is one of (if not the) first time playing the cross fuseki. I have to admit, I'm getting a real eye opener posting these videos just what I don't normally play and play too much of. I should do more of these cross games!
Up to 4kyu now and I brought in a friend of mine to try and ask me questions I might not think to answer. I like the idea behind it but, if I'm being completely honest, the recording at this point is kinda low quality. My microphone and my friends microphone are not [...]
So, on KGS the normal method of ranking up is finding a bot, beating a bot, and getting a provisional rank. Since you rank up quickly on KGS it doesn't take too long to climb the ranks, but it does mean you have to start off a lot lower than you normally would want [...]
