Guo Juan 5P covers a game between two middle kyu level players in her online group class. She summarizes, “In this game I will pay attention to when to attack and when should we defend, and an understanding of a joseki.” You’ll want to go over her game line examples and variations of how to attack from a position of strength, and why not to attack from a position of weakness. And for tsumego lovers, the lower right corner might even make a dan player pause.
