I wanted to share with you this amazing tournament game that I played last Thursday. This was both my highest rated opponent I've beaten and also my fastest tournament win (I've played shorter where I threw a piece away or something a...Read more »

I recently quit a bunch of my chess.com groups, because I am getting really busy IRL and don't have as much time for chess.com anymore. Plus, I was in a lot of groups that I joined just because they were large and popular, and I did very little with the group and was tired of receiving news alerts. I also quit several groups that were way too inactive and there was no point to be in. A few of the groups I quit I was an admin in. I stayed in the groups that I am interested in or an admin in or need to be in or am involved in in some other way.
So, because of this, if you send me a group invite, I will probably not accept it. I'm just too busy to contribute to any more groups. If there is a group that you really would like me join (and I'm not just on an automated list of "an invite stash") then message me privately and I'll consider it. Thanks!

My mom, brother and I run a real-life Chess Club! Scroll down.
I now am accepting challenges for correspondence chess again, but only from my friends.
Scroll down to see the groups I'm a Super Admin /Admin in, information about the online tournaments that I direct on here, and a few of my favorite songs.
If you send me a friend's request, I will not accept it if you are a completely random person I don't know; sorry. If you are in a lot of the same groups as me/in my tournaments, etc. I will accept it.
I change my avatar fairly often (about once or twice a month) and right now I have this cool chess wallpaper picture.

Hi! A little bit about me: Ok, I like Maroon 5. You might be able to tell. (If you can't figure it out, hint: my username.) But they aren't my favorite band. Oh, no. They are my third favorite. Why do I have my username Maroon5fan, then? Because in the ten seconds that it took me to create a username, they were my favorite. And now, Daughtry and Nickelback aren't even mentioned. Well, maybe they are, since I just did. Anyway, as you probably can tell, I like music. Among my favorite artists (beside the three already named) are David Cook, Lmfao, Lifehouse, Linkin Park, Train, Flo Rida, Pitbull, Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis, PSY..... blah blah blah. Okay, enough about music. I like chess. I guess that's obvious. (Why would I be writing a profile on a chess website if I didn't like chess?) I have been playing for about 3 years, and regularly compete in USCF rated tournaments.
I am an active TD on chess.com, if you are interested in playing in any of my tournaments you can join my tournament group here:
Maroon5fan's Tournament Group
We are a very active group and are growing rapidly!
Here are other groups I am Super Admin in:
This a new group I created called The Elite Few. It is for only the highest rated, most active, most trustworthy and friendly members that chess.com has. Our goal is to be the very best! You may apply to join it here, but be aware that we may not accept you.
The Elite Few
My mom, brother and I run a real life chess club! If you're ever in the area (or live here) PLEASE stop by! See the information about by clicking here, and see the group for it by clicking below!

Here are some other groups I'm an Admin or Super Admin in with links that you are welcome to join (not in any particular order):

What else...... Ok, some more about me: I am 15 years old, a Christian, am homeschooled, and live in Southern California. My main interests (as previously stated) are chess and music. I also like athletic stuff (like running, swimming, basketball, etc.) and lots of other things. I am a big animal person; I love dogs! I have two chihuahua mixes. I guess that pretty much sums me up. Oh, and I have a younger brother. (He's on chess.com too, his username is BenG_01. )
Here are some music videos of songs from some of my favorite artists, enjoy!
[the video players may not work, so just click "watch on youtube" to see them. I'll fix them some other time, just too lazy right now. ]
This is one of my favorite Daughtry songs No Surprise.
Here is their newest, Outta My Head. One of my faves also.
Now for some Nickelback! Here's If Today Was Your Last Day.
Next up, Nickelback's Gotta Be Somebody.
Now time for some catchy Maroon 5! Here's 2011's viral hit (you've probably heard it) Moves Like Jagger!
A couple more M5 faves, Misery and Give A Little More.
That's just a small sample of the kind of music I like.
Other chess websites:
I have an account on ChessCube, though I hardly ever get on it anymore (maybe once a month).
I recently registered on ICC (Internet Chess Club) but haven't had time to do much on there yet.
Well, that's about it! Thanks for reading my profile.
