A very peculiar programmer. A superficial appearance juxtaposed with a uncannily shrewd mind... I started playing chess when I was fairly young, I love the complexity of the game. After I became relatively good in western chess, I when on to learn Shogi (Japanese chess) and Xiangqi (Chinese chess). I also play Go occasionally, which is another great strategy game. (Yes, I am a fan of Bleach & Byakuya Kuchiki).
