The Most Active GM In History?
FM MikeKlein on 11/4/15, 8:15 AM.

When it comes to titled players on, one man has climbed Mt. Everest. GM Rogelio Antonio Jr., 53, better known as "gmjoey1," has now played more than 100,000 games over six years. is likely his browser's homepage by now! That is surely a record among all grandmasters who frequent the site, and is quite possibly the most games played by any of the 13 million members. His name is so synonymous with live chess that he has his own fan club despite never participating in any "official" events like Titled Tuesdays or Death Matches.

One blogger explained his popularity plainly: "It's simple, it's because he's online a lot. We can easily get into his game from the top game match. His fans even said, 'Some say he doesn't sleep,' or, 'I never get into live chess without find Joey playing.'

Jun-28-16  Pulo y Gata: Congratulations!
