Weak group makes you weak

Did Igor Popov (Supermove) played a supermove to win? Like the cut 43 Bk15 when he created a weak group to his opponent? Well he created a huge influence (situation after move 39) and he used it well. Enjoy!

Update. Oops!: read also the comments below.
             Was it a good idea for white to approach the influence with 40 j15?

Now we have both Igor and Alexander Popov on DGS.
They are in best 5 in Moscow!

I think I know. It was supermove's first game on that server and he forgot to mark dead stones.

You just discovered a sensation! The influence didn't make up for the territory loss from the fuseki after all. Indeed W wins by 2.5 but the game is recorded as above. I wonder how that happened - they meticulously filled all the dames :)

actually, doesn't W win by 2.5?...
