This is a game between a 1 kyu (Black) and 1 dan player.

In this lesson I’d like to focus on weak kyu players’ mistakes such as 15 kyu, 10 kyu, 5 kyu, 3 kyu. But I will show 4 dan level moves, too.

I’ve been examining more than 120 or 150 amateur games every month for many years. Based on that, I can state common adult mistakes in my commentary.
