3 Questions in a Painful Loss to a Player 3 Stones Stronger than Me.

I just lost a game that I was streaming live on my Twitch channel. I made flashcards of most of my mistakes after understanding them… however there were a few positions were the AI suggested moves that didnt make sense to me.

Why should I play 1 in this position?

I played at ‘2’ so that I could threaten to hop in his territory at ‘3’

Why is S17 so important now?

I feel funny playing on the 2nd line at this stage of the game unless I’m desperate for life.

How does one reason out that N12 is a safe cut to make?

I played a surround move like L13 to make my group stronger while I threatened, but apparently N12 works… any suggestions on how to think about this cut are appreciated.
