I find the most difficult thing about Go is learning the right
words to translate the basic concepts in any kind of human language.
You can do problems, you can replay games, but still, finding the right
words to discuss about Go is something very difficult to learn on your
own. Therefore I am really grateful that I had the chance to study in
Japan as an insei from 1999 to 2001 with the help of Kobayashi
Chizu. In Japan I believe I got the chance to learn the right language about Go from
really great teachers like Kobayashi Satoru, Rin Kaiho, Miyazawa Goro...
But looking back those years I might say that the greatest luck during my stay in Japan was meeting Hans Pietsch. He had been staying nextdoor to me for years, generously offering teaching games and reviews night and day (mostly nights, though). I still believe, that the lessons of Hans gained me a solid understanding of the basic concepts of Go more than any of the high level classes I attended.
I returned from Japan I focused on offline teaching and tournament play. I
had been teaching in the French, Czech and Hungarian Go camps and also in the European Youth Championship in
2009. I also organize a weekly Go meeting at my home in Budapest.
Some of my most outstanding tournament results are:
2009 European Championship 3.rd place
2004 European Ing cup 1.st place
2002 Paris Tournament 2.nd place
1995 European Youth Championship 1.st place
