  • Pandanet account: Claypool
  • Go career: Learn when I was 15, in Ko Go Club of Geneva (Switzerland). I played occasionally since then, and met Chizu Kobayashi 5p who did big effort at this time in Switzerland to promote Go towards young players. With John Walch, I became Insei for one year in Japan thanks to the help of C. Kobayashi who helped us for this adventure. I left as a 2 kyu, and come back in august 2009 as a 1-2 dan. I did not play so much since then, because of ingeenering study, so I lack practice. But I'm still very interested in Go and hope to continue to progress very soon.
