Personal message
      I learned to play Go at the age of 5 in 2000. I played many tournaments and Go was a lot of fun for me then (and it still is now) . I started taking it more seriously after I went to study for 3 months to Korea in 2009. I got a lot of motivation to become better, and slowly,  I realized that I play blitz on KGS almost every day. Thanks to the effort, support of others and luck I became pro in 2014. Since then I tried to be even more serious about the game, that is why I also went to study Go for half a year to China in 2014-2015.
       I am very happy that I was able to reach this level. But that is not the only thing I am happy about. Thanks to Go I could travel around Europe and Asia, made good friends and had many great experience. Thanks to Go I met my loved wife!
       Besides Go, I like to do sports, especially football, I am also a university student of math in Bratislava.
