Here's my website: http://kaydentroff.blogspot.com/. There's lots of cool things on this website. Come and see my donation meter, good quotes, my 1,500 pound chocolate chess set, my US Chess School video, my Clustrmap...
In case you were wondering - it takes a lot of money to travel along the pathway to Grandmaster. I'll be working on GM norms in tournaments around the country and out of the country and I'm thankful to all those people around the country that have provided great norm tournaments in this regard. Please donate on my website through Paypal to help me out! Even little donations help out a lot, and I am grateful to all those that have donated.

Here's me on television just before I won the Gold Medal and became the North American U12 Champion:

If you go to my website above it shows me being presented with a 1,500 pound chocolate chess set as mentioned above - you really want to see it - I know you do!
Thanks Steve and Katie (The Little Chocolatiers)!!! I did you proud at the 2010 World Youth Championship in Greece! -Silver medal - 2nd place in the world - Yeah baby!
2012 U14 World Champion!!! After 11 rounds in Maribor, Slovenia I tied for first with 9/11 and won on tiebreaks, taking home the gold medal! Read my blog about the experience here. Thanks for everybody's support!
After the 2013 Golden State Open my FIDE rating went above 2400 meeting the last requirement for the International Master title!
Right now I am working on my Grand Master title! I have 1 GM Norm and am working on the other two!
I had the wonderful opportunity to play in the 2013 US Championships as a wildcard! It was a great and crazy tournament! Going into the tournament I was seeded 23rd out of 24 players and at the end of the tournament tied for 6th and placed 9th on tiebreaks. It was a great experience to be there and I am hoping to be back in future years!
