I started playing USCF tournaments when I was 21 years old. I started out in the 1200s. My peak USCF rating is 1844.  I am currently trying to earn a rating of 2000. My long-term goal is to earn the National Master title, a rating of 2200. The majority of people don't think it can be done. I plan on giving it my best. Follow me on my journey.
