In this game between 1 kyu players, Guo Juan 5P covers an issue that may come up in half or even more of kyu level games. Black steadily builds a moyo, while White waits too long to invade or reduce. When White finally addresses the moyo, Black does not effectively use the moyo’s power to keep the advantage. Guo Juan adeptly covers all the angles.
