Frederick S. Rhine is User: FSR on chessgames.com. The United States Chess Federation awarded him the titles of National Master of chess (1983) and Senior Master of Correspondence Chess (1997). He played in the 1997 USCF Absolute Championship (open to the top 13 correspondence players who accept their invitations), scoring 6-6 (+2=8-2). He and chessgames.com co-founder Alberto A Artidiello both attended Lane Technical High School in Chicago until Albert moved away. Rhine was a member of Lane's chess team, which won the Illinois State Championship his junior and senior years, becoming the first team ever to win in consecutive years. Kenneth Mohr and Christopher Kus were among his teammates.
Two of his games, F Rhine vs D Sprenkle, 1981 and K Thompson vs F Rhine, 1992, were both published with his notes in Chess Informant, and cited in the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings. Chess Informant's panel of grandmaster judges voted 18.Nxd6! in Rhine-Sprenkle the 8th-9th most important theoretical novelty played in Volume 32 of Chess Informant. That game also occupies an entire chapter in all three editions of Beating the Sicilian by John Nunn, and was cited in MCO-13. It is game 218 in 1000 TN!! The Best Theoretical Novelties (Chess Informant, 2012).
Rhine has also written extensively for Wikipedia, including authoring "First-move advantage in chess" and "George H. D. Gossip," both of which have been Today's Featured Article, a distinction attained by only about 1 out of every 1,400 Wikipedia articles. Two studies he composed have been published in "Benko's Bafflers" in Chess Life magazine (see User: FSR for one of them). He contributes to the Chicago Chess Blog, http://chicagochess.blogspot.com.
