Introductions

A friend of mine introduced me to Go in July of 2003 and I've been hooked ever since. I can be found on KGS and Dragon Go Server as halo5. My blog/sandbox can be found at [ext] http://www.revgum.com .

My Shusaku number is 5, through a [ext] simul I played (and won) against Takemiya Masaki: Shusaku - Iwasaki Kenzo - Shusai - Takagawa Kaku - Takemiya Masaki

Books

2005-1-23: I just bought and finished reading Otake Hideo's, 'Opening Theory Made Easy'. This is a great book, it gave me some insight as to how I might make use of my stones better in fuseki. I'm experimenting with some of the new ideas and will likely be reading this again soon!

I'm adding a list of books in my collection, I've read almost all of these and continue to learn new things everytime I read them. Considering the wealth of information in these books and my mid-kyu strength, I've probably got enough material to study and improve my strength for many years to come.
