Hey there, my name is Noah B! I am a 14-year-old Christian who loves everything chess!


2 years ago now, I discovered the game of chess when my friend Max started really getting into it. He taught me how the pieces move and all of that, and I was fascinated. I decided that I wanted to be really good at chess. I created a Chess.com account, started watching a lot of chess on YouTube and Twitch, and the rest is history.

After about a year of playing chess, I started participating in my first chess tournaments. I was terrified, but I knew it was good for me if I wanted to get better. I faced my fears and kept participating in more and more chess events. Eventually, I started winning trophies and even finished first in a couple of tournaments!

My current USCF regular rating is 1305. I look to keep improving and continue to be addicted to the wonderful game of chess, playing around the clock both online and over the board.


This past year, I started getting very involved in the social side of chess. I started writing a blog right here on Chess.com and since then have been writing about chess just as often as I have been playing it! I was recently gifted the role of Chess.com Top Blogger (a HUGE thank you to Chess.com for that!).

In addition to blogging, I started posting chess content on my YouTube channel. I have been inconsistent in uploading videos, I know, but I am really trying to get better about it. So that's also worth a look, in my opinion. I created a Twitch channel as well, but to be honest I don't think I'm ever going to get around to streaming 😅. If you want, you can check that out too, but there isn't much to see over there at the moment.

Through these socials, I have come to know many people in the chess community. I am truly grateful for the experience. It has been so cool.


Aside from chess, I enjoy playing sports in general, but mostly basketball. I also really enjoy playing video games, riding my bike, and playing piano.

I love to watch all sports, both college and professional, and I like to memorize all the scores and stats. I will gladly talk sports with anyone who wants to. I started running a growing club here on Chess.com where we discuss everything related to the NBA and the great sport of basketball. Join if you're a basketball fanatic like me!

If you want to know anything else about me or have questions for me, feel free to ask in my AMA forum. All questions are welcome.

And that's pretty much it. Thanks for reading about me. Cya! happy.png
