Autobiographical Comments

I am the only person in the world able to play and finish a blind-go on 19x19. (Applying for Guinness World Records)

I am Chinese 6d from Beijing. I graduated from Tsinghua University, and I was the first board of the university's Go team.

I was the organizer and head coach of the 2004 and 2005 Go to China Trip.

I have been to Sweden, 2004 Goteborg Open, gave the seminar and played a blind game against Matthew Macfadyen (English 6d).
