Hi everyone~! :razz:

I've been reading though these forums for a while now, and decided it's time I take part too :)
My name is Jacob, and I am 17 years old.

Like many people, I found out about this game after watching Hikaru no Go.
I started playing around ~5 months ago (late September), and have gotten to KGS 4 kyu since.

I believe that one should be optimistic and set their sight on a ridiculous goal to succeed,
even though it might not be possible - and that's why my ultimate goal is to get to 9 Dan!
(... probably sometime in the far.. far.. far.. future...)
In the meantime though, I'll be focusing on a much smaller and a slightly more realistic goal, which is to become 1 Dan, hopefully in the next 2-3 months.

Well, that's pretty much it about myself.
Looking forward to spending my time here with everyone :)

Thank you!
Biz

Good to see you're enjoying the ride so far.

Just take it one rank at a time and keep going.

4k in half a year is pretty good, though. Keep on enjoying yourself, and who knows how far you'll come.

I play around 4-5 games on average every day.
That combined with an occassional half an hour or so to study Go from the web or books, sums up to around 2-2.5 hours a day.
Though there are days when I am super motivated, and play over 10 games in one day, and can end up spending more than 5-6 hours.

And yes tenato, that is the plan! :razz:
