  • Go career: I am member of the swiss go federation board I stopped chess at the age of 21 for Go and reached a few years ago 4d. But what I like the most is to study so maybe i can still progress. I followed the wonderful group teaching of - Chizu Kobayashi 5p in Geneva - Inseong Hwang ( by internet) and I regularly take private lesson with Li Ang 3p from China.

  • 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 engineering study, so I lack practice. But I'm still very interested in Go and hope to continue to progress very soon.
