  • Go career: I started playing Go when I was 8, at school, from Teodor Vartic. He was my first teacher and he introduced me to the magic world of Go. After I discovered this game, I taught my brother, Denis, to play. He was really interested in this game and I was happy to have a partner for studying. I travel around the world with my brother to participate in Go tournaments. In 2011 was 9th place at World Youth Championship. We got many good results in international competitions and we are still going on. This year I am the champion of U18 category in Romania.
