I live in the Logan Sq. neighborhood of Chicago and have been playing Go since January 2005. 3k KGS, 4k IGS, 2k AGA. I run the Lakeview Go Club, if you plan on coming to Chicago for a visit, make sure you check us out. We meet every Tuesday in the Lakeview neighborhood from 6-10 at Intelligentsia Coffee.
I don't use Sensei's that much, maybe someday I will.
