My name is Julian Baldus and I’m a shogi player from Germany.

I’m currently ranked at 4Kyu according to FESA.

I started playing shogi competetively in 2016 and soon after established a shogi club in my hometown Düsseldorf.

Knowing that I’m not in the upper echelon of shogi players in Europe yet, I decided to focus on the “human part” of shogi, rather than to delve into discussions about Joseki and complicated strategies.
