Hi! I'm 30 years old and a computer scientist living in Hamburg. Right now I call myself 6-Dan with an EGF Rating (September 2013) of 2546. On IGS, I play as bteuber, on KGS as Ahamay. My XMPP address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was born in Heidelberg, but I spent most of my life until now in Bremen, where I started to learn Go from Jochen Fassbender when I was 12. I think his good way to teach and motivate me was a big reason that people believe I would be "strong".
The other reason are my studies in Japan: As a student of the late Hans Pietsch(6p) and his teacher Kobayashi Chizu(5p), I went to Tokyo several times for study, staying there about a month each time. In autumn of 2003, I even became Insei there for the short period of 3 months
In the summer of 2005, I went to korea to study in a korean baduk school for one month together with Hwan Kuk Kang.
Starting from the autumn of 2013, I am currently training in China for 5 1/2 months.
The 2011 Amsterdam International Go Tournament was won by Benjamin Teuber who didnít lose any of his games.
