Hello, my real name is Antoine Gérard, from France. I've first learned about Go out of curiosity by taking an initiation book from a library in november 2002. After that I had been studying the game seriously for about 6 months. Meanwhile I discovered Hikaru no Go which increased my interest for the game.
Then I stopped for about two years until last september (2005) when I decided to join a local Go club in Paris with a friend ( Club de l'Observatoire).
I don't play very often on the Internet, though you can see me frequently roaming on KGS as AkaHige ( rank graph). I like playing on turn-based servers, more especially LittleGolem where I am playing as Antoine.
Akahige means 'red beard' in english. It is the title and the name of the main character of one of my favourite movies : Red Beard by the great Akira Kurosawa. It is the story of a famous japanese doctor. A beautiful, moving and deeply humanist film that everyone should see !
