Teacher on KGS. 1d. Ex president of the Binghamton U Go Club.
Teaching style is extremely open ended, resembling a study group discussion. Doesn't enjoy generalizations of situations or rules to follow when playing GO, leading to everything being taken with a grain of salt.
Enjoys teaching the general thinking and approach in playing good GO in relations to shapes, psychology and theories. The open endedness of this style of teaching hopes to open up the learner's mind to be even a greater GO player than the teacher.
Prefers white but a better winning percentage taking black. A huge fan of 1 space low pincer on a kakari on kosumi.
Likes blitz games based on intuition.
Prefers sacrifice than being attacked and abused. Often loses on over-sacrificing.
Strong against overplays. Usually dislikes fighting but welcomes it when challenged.
