Game summary: 

Hi pcesar22,
Thanks for uploading your game to go-academy.org!

My name is Leo and I play as 2k on KGS. I will have a look at your game and leave comments and variations to provide you with some ideas how to improve your game.

After checking the game I think you technically played very well in most areas of the board. Unfortunately you made some big strategic mistakes which allowed your opponent to take a way better situation. Later in the game he was able to use this advantage to make profit in various areas of the board and win the game.

Most striking examples for these kinds of mistakes are move 9 where you played on the 3rd line to get very little extra territory instead of putting pressure on your opponent and making profit yourself at the same time. Moves 17 and 19 are other examples where you missed to cut your opponent's groups which would have allowed you to get good results at the bottom and on the right side. And finally move 33 where you attached at your opponents stone instead of attacking more severly by jumping to the center forcing your opponent to run out or live small at the top which might have resulted in making a profit in the center (cutting the groups in the lower right was still possible at that time). 

I hope you will enjoy the review. Good luck for your next games!
