>9x9 or 13x13
is 13x13 fine? (+6,5 points for white)
i just took the initiative and started with d4.
i, personally, do not feel comfortable with the 19x19 board. it's too big for me. i do not have the overview of where it would be important to play.
9x9 is fine, but a bit too small for my taste. it seems to be pretty much decided by local fights only.
>Though I've never actually played against another human.
i played against a few in real life. most of them were not really into it and just went along "well, whatever" and didn't seem to really try. i also played a few matches online, but i seem to lose most of them. i think i am mainly losing because of local fights and not because of tactical reasons. maybe i should play more 9x9 matches?
>And I don't know if I actually have any time for a match, sadly.
no problem. this is slow board. 1 stone a day or week would be enough. and, if you do not find the time at all, we can also abandon or pause the match.>>15628
>How do I git gud in this game?
some premade problems are quite good to get the hang of it. afterwards i would try a few matches online. i never played against an AI, so i do not know how strong the weakest AI you are facing may be.https://online-go.com
