Hello everybody. I am George Stiffman and I love chess. I am 12 years old and have been playing since I was 4 or 5. In third grade I started to play pretty competitively in tournaments and in 5th grade I joined chess.com. Right now my USCF rating is 1590. I have won the elementary state tournament once and got 2nd place once. This year at the national elementary I tied for 16th place but because of tie-breaks I got like 32nd place. My favorite top chess player is probably Morphy because he rocks and Capablanca would probably be my second because he also rocks.
My other favorite things are tennis and soccer. I am of course a Nadal fan because Federrer totally stinks and Nadal is a beast. In soccer, Messi is totally my favorite player.
