Info:

that is me studying the position on the Manray chess set at the Toledo (Ohio) Art Museum in 2015....(it is a chigorin defence)

I have won twenty championships in eight different games:

Lyngk (seven times)
Breakthrough (five times)
Mini Shogi (twice)
Conhex (twice)
Amazons
Catchup
Einstein
Qyps

I also won both of the Monster Tournaments

I have achieved a 2000 plus rating in eleven different games: Lyngk (2159) conhex (2004), chess (2286), shogi (2048), twixt (~2020), Amazons (2126), Four in a Row (~2075), Gomoku (2005), Breakthrough (2290), Einstein (2006), Slither (2046).

My best go rating is 6.7kyu

I achieved USCF Candidate Master title for over the board chess tournament play in December 2016. (first norm achieved in 1993, fifth norm achieved 2016). I have been an active tournament chess player in the U.S. since 1977 (more than 1,000 tournaments). My best USCF rating is 2067. Interestingly, I hold the world record for latest castling in a game, google “latest castling chess” and you will find the game at the top of the search (I castled prematurely at move 48)

I have been self employed from chess since 1997. I owned Chess Express, a retail specialty store in downtown Ann Arbor from 1997-2000. Since 2000, I have been a full time scholastic chess instructor in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My website is www.arborchess.com

I joined littlegolem in September 2005 and it has been a part of my life eversince.

My new hobby during the pandemic...I have been working hard at disc golf, practice every day!
