Career and achievements as a player:
My name is Gheorghe Cornel Burzo and I was born on may 3rd 1980 in Bistrita, a small town located in the north of Romania.
I came across the game of Go for the first time at age of 10 when my grandfather bought a Go game set for me and my two brothers as a Christmas present but we couldn't really understand the rules from the flyer inside the box so I found the game boring and quit after trying a few 9x9 games.
Few years later I moved with my family in a bigger city Baia Mare also in the north of Romania and in 1993-1994 I started to join a local Go club which was ran by a physics teacher Florin Berciu 2 kyu and once I got to learn the rules properly I found the game fascinating and addictive and since then I took part in over 280 go tournaments worldwide.
