Hideki Nara, Japanese, 41 years old, male

1.When did you start to play renju and how did you learn it? How many years have you played renju?

I started Renju 26 years ago , when I'm 15 years old. I played renju with my school friends during school class time. And once a month, I went to renju club, Yokosuka Renju kai, near to my home. I had been to Asagaya Renju kai once a week till 17 years old, I played and analized many games with Shigeru Nakamura 1-dan in that time. So I became stronger , I think.

2.Do you play in a club? In which clubs have you played?

I'm playing in Jousai Renju club personally. On the other hand, I'm planning and organizing many tournaments in Kantou districts. And I'm one of the member of any national renju events in Japan as one of the director of Nihon Renju Sha , too.

3.Which are your best results in national and international tournaments (Usual tournaments and e-mail tournaments). Which is your international rating for the moment?

2nd place in both 1st. and 3rd. World Championship tournament. In 1st. tournament's 2nd place is far from 1st place player. But in 3rd Arjeplog tournament, even if I got draw in last game, I'll be the winner. That was big chance for me. If,... if I won that tournament, the situation of Meritee and me will be revers position now. . . .

NO one will think like that...(^_^)

I heard that my international rating is about 9th place.
