About me

I am a player and enthusiast in Renju and Gomoku, or the so-called Wuziqi in China. Although I started to play renju when I was very young, there have been only a few years since I started to play in formal tournaments in 2013. In 2017, I obtained my first national champion title by winning the National University Championship, and was awarded the ranking of 4 dan.

I am glad to communicate and make friends with Renju fans all over the world. This is my home page on RenjuNet.
