The official document for the Clossi approach to selecting a move should not go away. And Clossius (Shawn Ray) is still actively teaching both on YouTube and Twitch. But I wanted to preserve it just it case it disappeared. So here it is:
In practice, you often combine the steps
For instance, if I have a weakness but can attack his weakness while fixing mine, that is far better than a passive move to just fix my weakness. But sometimes you need to make a small passive move and get it over with instead of having a weakness plague you for the entire game.
What is weakness?
- Do I have a base?
- Do I have 3 or more ways out?
- Can my opponent gain a lot from attacking/surrounding?
