Member since Jun-11-03 · Last seen Feb-17-18
Born in '76. I moved a lot with my family, as my dad was in the Air Force until '89. Now, I work and have lived in Aurora, Colorado since '89. I have been playing chess since I was 7(almost 42 now). Still fascinated with the game. Haven't played an OTB tournament in quite some time(I think dinosaurs were still alive then). No Elo rating to speak of, as I play recreationally, either with family, at the local club or on-line at If you would like to play a game, my user name on is the same as it is here.

   Dec-31-17 S Zhigalko vs Kirill Shubin, 2017
JSYantiss: This one is round 10....the other one is round 9. Odd that the move lists would be identical, with the players reversed on the colors, though.
