I am provisionally rated in international level tournaments organized by Jude Acers (between 1993 and 1996)  at 2080. I first played online in 1997 at the Internet Chess Club under the username "Deepyellow," then later in 1998 at Yahoo chess under the username "Unizenuarp."  In 1999 I then switched again to chess.net (under the username "Zenuite", and later under the username "Gontar") and remained there till 2008. Altogether I played over 27,000 games there. Additionally, I used to  have a high ranking in the early 2000s at Reversi at the MPlayer gaming site, and the site which succeeded it, GameSpy. I defeated there most notably the users NoLegalMoves and MrStoneU. My username there was also Zenuite. I also briefly played at World Chess Network around 2000 or 2001.


 I have as a record one of the fastest wins against USCF Senior Master Jude Acers. It was a win in 18 moves, played in November of 1993 in the New Orleans French Quarter. [Mr Acers is in the 1976 and 1977 editions of The Guinness Book of World Records for conducting the largest simultaneous exhibitions at the time. He also has had a 2400+ USCF rating at various times, and a rapid rating of over 2500.]  


My favorite players are Kasparov, Fischer, and Karpov.


I also have a youtube page with classical music, drama and some comedy videos.
