So far, I've completed 7 recreations. I have 1 in progress, and 10 left that I want to do. I think recreating these games is good for me, because I beat my cousin for the first time today. I'm getting better at seeing strategies to keep my stones alive, but my beginning game still sucks. My end game is pretty nice though. At least I know an area I need to improve. If anyone is interested in looking at these kifu, I can give you the files and the program you can use to view them.
