About me

My name is Scott Jankowski, and I'm a 30 year old Go player from Buffalo, New York. I first learned to play Go in 2004, but mostly at the "Why are you taking my stones off the board?!?" level. In late 2005, after reading a few exellent beginner books, I found myself wanting to know more about the game. I began playing on [ext] Yahoo Games, but soon found KGS where I now play and teach. I ran several Go clubs in the Cleveland, Ohio area for 5+ years and studied Under Kim Sung-Rae (5P) at the King’s Baduk Center in South Korea in 2009. Now I am living teaching, and playing in the Buffalo area.

Some of my favorite quotes:

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

     -Lou Holtz

Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.

    -Liane Cardes

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.

    -Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.

  -Harold Wilson

“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, I know I can achieve it.”

    -Jesse Jackson

“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.”

    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Focus on what you are doing, not on how long or hard it is."

    -Jeff Keith
