Mr. Chun, the master of Baduk, in Russia
Mr. Chun is a 8 pro dan Baduk from Sourth Korea.
He contributed a lot to Go development in Russia.
Mr. Chun often came to Russia and taught Russians how to organize tournaments, to teach children, and how to play Go.
I met Master Chun in Kazan during a tournament for children, organized by him and his friend. Mr. Chun spent a lot of time with children, he reviewed their games and taught them how to play Go.
Thanks for Mr. Chun, Alexandre Dinerchtein and Svetlana Shikshina went to Korea to study Go. And now both of them have 1 pro dan.
All Go fans from Russia say “Thanks a lot!” for Mr. Chun.
