My name is Eric Speicher. I live in Thousand Oaks, California.
Around 1986, I bought a go board and a book on the rules. A friend and I played each other, constantly adjusting the handicap between us as either of us would win three games. We never played anyone else, and I do not think go would have ever had my attention if I had not found it online.
On Dragon Go Server as Degan, where I've stopped playing for months.
On KGS as Degan where I have resumed playing.
Former member of Munich Go Club, competed in several Go tournaments in Germany
Degan comes from the German name for the sport I spent a great deal of time playing at as a young adult, known in English by it's French name, Epee.
