I am Finnish go hobbyist, sometimes very active sometimes I forget Go even exists. My go "career" or the time I've been knowing and playing Go goes as far year 2005 when THE anime introdouced me to it. I revere the game itself becouse its very simple, but same time its so deep and complicated.
I love go becouse you will be challenged everytime with stronger move and it strives to grow as a person and a player. Go itself has driven me to develop other aspects of my life too.
