I'm a Go player hailing from Augsburg, Germany, at the moment. I was born in 1986 in Timișoara, Romania. You can talk to me in English or German. My Go Club meets at an Italian restaurant in Steppach. I've started playing Go in August 2002 on Yahoo Go Servers, but soon moved on to KGS because of its great teaching functions and comfortable handling, but mostly because of many friends of mine playing there all the time. My main account there is Woodstock.
From 2012 to 2017 I played in Munich at Mil's Sportrestaurant.
Recently I've been more and more involved and dedicated to organising Go events, mainly the European Go Congresses. I was a small part of EGC 2012 Bonn, Germany, I oversaw and helped with the news section at EGC 2016 St. Petersburg, Russia, and I was the chief news editor and head of content for EGC 2017 in Oberhof, Germany and EGC 2018 in Pisa, Italy.
- I will play free games against any opponent (adequate handicap if needed).
- I will play ranked games against people of ± 1 rank compared to mine. If you want a ranked handicap game I will probably play with one of my lightning accounts.
- I will not play as white against opponents who are too selfish to teach others. Those are marked with a [~] sign.
- No undo in ranked games, except for obvious misclick (stand by your mistakes and don't ruin your style by undoing moves all the time!).
- No addtime, except you were afk and I have enough time to finish the game afterwards.
- Although I am online I might be afk or just have no time/intention to play, so leave a message but don't always expect an answer.
- I will never drop from an unfinsihed game on purpose. If I seem to do so, just wait. But if I don't appear within 10 minutes, leave a message and I guarantee to continue afterwards.
