Hello, my name is GM Alexander Ipatov (FIDE: 2650, USCF: 2713). I am a computer science student at Saint Louis University. I am also captain of its collegiate chess team, which is the second strongest in the nation.

In 2012, I won the World U-20 Junior Chess Championship ahead of Ding Liren, Rapport, Yu Yangyi, Wei Yi and other grandmasters. The following year, I came close to repeating my success at the World Junior Championship. Having scored 10.5/13, I had to settle for the second place behind Yu Yangyi who finished with 11 points. Additionally, I won the Turkish National Championship twice in 2014 and 2015, having scored 12.5/13 in the latter one.

I'm also the author of the book "Unconventional Approaches to Modern Chess": https://www.amazon.com/dp/9492510480

 

If you would like to get in touch with me, feel free to send me a message on Chess.com! Thank you.
