Austrian Go player, 5 Dan, also known as Bernhard Scheid. Winner of National Ch'ships 1990, 1992, 1998, 1999, 2003 and 2004. Author of [ext] Pok's Go Space, a collection of essays, games and tournament reports, mainly from Austria, but also from other places in Europe.

Why Pok? When I had to chose a username for IGS, I first thought of pokerface, but found it too long. Then I wanted to type in poka, the Japanese word for "stupid mistake", but somehow made a poka and found myself called "pok". I've got to like it in the meantime, especially since I learned that it might have the meaning of "blowfish" in Korean (not sure whether this is correct or not).

Alex Weldon: Bok is a blowfish, though the initial consonnant is actually halfway between a B and a P, so you'll see it romanised as pok sometimes. Pok (or p'ok, in the old-style romanisation with the apostrophe denoting that it's an aspirated P) means "width."

Pok: Thx 4 that!

In hungarian language "Pk" means "spider".
