Grandmaster Boris Kreiman was born in Moscow, Russian SSR, USSR on June 7, 1976. He received his first chess training from the Russian School of Chess in Moscow at the age of 5. After moving to the United States at the age of 14, he settled on Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, New York, where he studied with GM Gata Kamsky. Later, he also trained with GM Alexey Vladislavovich Yermolinsky.
Kreiman won the U.S. Junior Championship in 1993 and 1996, played in the World Junior Championship three times, and was awarded the Samford Fellowship given annually to the most promising player under age 25 in the United States. Kreiman has won more than 20 international chess tournaments; in three U.S. Championships, his best finish was third at Seattle in 2002.
An experienced chess teacher for over a decade, he founded the Kreiman Chess Academy in Los Angeles, which is dedicated to incorporating chess into educational systems and to establishing competitive chess programs along the West Coast of the U.S. His students include Joel Cholo B Banawa and Jouaquin Banawa.
