Here’s a new commented game:
It’s a game I just lost against Crelo – congrats by the way!
Sorry, it’s probably only worth using a PC/mac to view, with Chrome or Firefox. The viewer doesn’t fit on the screen so well.
I’d like to find time to work on getting a better viewer so it’s more mobile-device /smaller screen friendly...
Let me know please if you have any feedback or comments.

Wow Malcom, I will read your commentaries and come back with some of my own thoughts.
As a general principle I try to make a king of a base on the toroidal board, so I have a stable position from where to develop. But because I lost our previous game by being too restrained, happy capturing a couple of stones, I tried this time to play more wide. What came after the cut was kind of chaotic, I was riding the tiger.
Thanks for your work.

aaahhhh.... So Crelo [6.6-Dan] has lost a game to Malcolm Schonfield [8.1-Dan]... IIRC, Malcolm mentioned he had lost a game (or more?) to somebody too, I can’t remember who though, maybe Crelo &/or eastknight1999 7-Dan &/or Jos Dekker, &/or eastknight1999, &/or Pascal Huybers, &/or Bernhard Herwig, &/or cloudbank, &/or drToma?
Anyway, THANKS to Malcolm Schonfield for creating the T-Go SGF file editor (game reviewer) and commenting on the games. I look forward to looking at the newest comments this weekend! Hey, BTW, remind me, is there a way for us (others) to share our comments and questions on other (our?) games???

Hello, sorry I didn’t get round to answering Sighris properly earlier.
Thanks, Sighris and Crelo, for your comments. Sighris, you wrote about the players who I’ve lost against in T-Go. It’s an interesting point and it’s spurred me to do a bit of work! I think I’ll respond in a separate post in the forum.
Sighris, about your other question about sharing: it should be quite easy for you to share your comments and questions on any T-Go game. Here’s a quick-ish guide on how to do it.
1) getting the SGF
The first step is to get the SGF for the T-Go game, with your comments and questions. I do this by using my online T-Go SGF editor, (maybe alternatively you can use the SGF editor q5g - I haven’t tried, but there is something about it in the SL page on T-Go). My editor has integration with LG (LittleGolem) so that you can open the editor, preloaded with a game that was played here, by adding the game’s LG ID to the address, like this:
Once you’ve entered in your comments/questions/variations and so on, you can get the SGF that encodes it all (the game, along with the comments and variations) by copying the contents of the “T-Go SGF” text box.
(If you’re not scared of using a text editor you can then also use one to edit the SGF – edit your comments / run spellcheck etc. I tend to use VS code to do that.)
2) sharing the SGF
The simplest way for you to share it is to send the SGF to me! Via mail (malcolm_schonfield “at” yahoo dott fr) or FB/messenger, and I can put it on my blog for you. Alternatively, if you have a little expertise with HTML, you can put it on your own blog or web page. The way to do that is described here:
(I have a few things in mind about improving features related to sharing T-Go in web pages, so hopefully it will become simpler and easier to add T-Go to any web page.)
Anyway, at this point, we’re done.
Moving forwardI hope the above guide is clear. I encourage all players interested in T-Go to write some game commentaries and share them! I would love to see your comments on some of your favourite / most interesting games!

Thanks Malcolm Schonfield... - oops, I misread your OP... I should have replied: aaahhhh.... So Malcolm Schonfield [8.1-Dan] has lost a game to Crelo [6.6-Dan]... - and now (in the other thread ) I see you have lost two games to Crelo, and he lost one game to you, one to Jos Dekker(3.2d), and one to Methylphenidate(10.7k)... Methylphenidate(10.7k) ? ! ? They are not in the T-Go table... When did that happen? ... I’m going to go see if I can find that game in game Crelo’s list/history.
