When I was a child, I dreamt about playing Go forever.

Even though I was only 10, it was just fascinating - a perfect representation of the reality - my personal pocket world. While others were playing outside, I was staying inside, focused, for hours. Don't worry, I was not isolated, in fact, quite the opposite!

At 15 years old I was already going around Europe by myself, to Go tournaments and meeting other players who later became dear friends.

Nowadays, Go is an essential part of myself. I am glad to share my experience with anyone who is interested in the magic of Go.
