Spencer, 18, born in Washington State.

After glancing a SciShow video on YouTube of AlphaGo defeating the top human player, something caught my eye: there's a game bigger
than chess. The idea of a game requiring no probability and only pure wit fascinates me, such as the roll of a die or the shuffling of cards. I spent my spring break learning the basics of Go. I immediately drowned in interest and love for this game. I put a pause on playing until this summer break, and I've been training happily ever since. I've even bought a $20.00 board and taught a couple kids at a summer camp! :)

Can't wait to contribute to this cool community. Thank you for reading!

Are you still in Washington? Anywhere near Seattle? If so, be sure to come by the Seattle Go Center.

Such a place I wish to go! I live a couple hours from Seattle, so I will not be visiting anytime soon. However, I am considering to attend UDUB, and if this road is taken, I'll for sure visit the center. :) I enjoy Nick on YouTube! I watch his videos often. They've definitely taught me a lot since his stuff is tailored for double digit Kyus.
