Pandanet ID: Cornel
I’m Cornel Burzo from Baia Mare in northern Romania.
I got in touch with the game of Go for the first time when I was 10 years old, initially I found it just boring but several years later after a decent introduction by my physics teacher who was a 2 kyu player, I understood the nature of the game and became quickly addicted.
I’ve studied Sports in College but my devotion to Go never allowed me to start working in education as I had originally planned.
Over the years, I took part in over 300 national and international tournaments in Europe, in the USA, China, Korea, Thailand and Japan.
I won the National Championship in Romania 6 times, placed 3rd and 4th in the European Championship in 2003, 2010 respectively and 5th place in the World Championship in 2008 , 6th place in WAGC Thailand 2015 and 7th place in WAGC China 2017.
During the winter I work a few weeks as a ski instructor but my main professional activity is now teaching Go, mainly over the internet and I have students from all over the world.
I offer offline game reviews but most students prefer either online games with commentary afterwards or online reviews of games already played, the lessons are often recorded so the student always gets a video documentation after the session.
On my YouTube channel you will find samples of commented games:
" Life is full of dreams, so is the Go board "
