Black 23 should be at 28

Black 33. This exchange has been better for white.

White 34. Too small, and in the wrong direction (because of the low position in the top left-hand corner. Consider B or C.

White 4. White should peep at A first, and force the connection.

Black 7. This is a terrible tactical blunder. Black should play at 110, which gives a second eye.

Black 21. This misses the point. It should be at 130, which then kills white (and wins the game).

White 34. Once white lives here, it’s difficult for black to win.
