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 nine championships in five different games:

Breakthrough (five times)
Amazons
Conhex
Catchup
Einstein

I also won both of the Monster Tournaments

I have achieved a 2000 plus rating in nine different games and 1900 plus in fourteen different games: chess (2286), shogi (currently under 2000), twixt (currently under 2000), Amazons (2126), Four in a Row (currently under 2000), Gomoku (2005), Breakthrough (high 2290), Einstein (currently under 2000), Slither (2046). I have reached 1900 but not 2000 in hex, dvonn, golemword game, street soccer, lines of action

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. 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 am 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.
