(b.1970) Nihon Ki-in pro, 8 dan in 1998.
Bob Myers: Ogaki (then 4-dan, left in the picture) was the teaching pro for our little company (Pacifitech) in Kamakura, Japan, in 1990 and 1991. Typically he played three boards -- Bob Myers (right) at around five stones, and Rick Myers (background) and Dave Stafford (background left) at around seven. He dutifully lost one in ten games. A great teacher -- too bad he's so strong these days he no longer needs to play teaching games.
