I had Go in the back of my mind for quite a while. After wholesale invasion I got dislocated and couldn’t continue my studies at university. There was a significant time period, while wrestling with bureaucracy abroad to get all the permits done, when the only thing I could do is to wait. I picked up Go as means to concentrate on something challenging and put a lot of energy into learning it.
At some point I got to improve a lot thanks to players at Open Study Room.
