Hi everyone, my name is Alex! I am a computer science student and captain of the collegiate chess team at Saint Louis University.

I have played chess for more than 20 years, becoming an International Grandmaster at 17 and winning numerous individual and team events around the world. Among my major successes is the memorable victory at 2012 World U-20 Junior Chess Championship, ahead of Ding Liren, Rapport, Yu Yangyi, Wei Yi and other strong grandmasters. I have been a top-150 player in the world and top-20 player in the United States (regardless of country, residence, or federation) for many years now. Feel free to check the current ranking on the USCF website: https://tinyurl.com/uscf-top-100-june-2020. For more detailed information on my chess achievements, you can refer to https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexander-ipatov/

In my spare time, I have also written two peer-reviewed books: https://www.amazon.com/dp/9492510480 and https://www.amazon.com/dp/9492510782/

I am happy to share my knowledge and experience with you. You can reach out to me by sending a message on Chess.com.
