Damn. So sorry to hear this. I never met David in person, but encountered him often on KGS, where his tireless contributions to welcoming new players and helping them get off to a good start will surely be missed.

RIP :black:

David was a regular at the New York Go Center two decades ago. He was as nice in person as he was online.
