Member since Jun-11-03 · Last seen Aug-09-18
Born in '76. I moved a lot with my family, as my dad was in the Air Force until '89. Now, I work and have lived in Aurora, Colorado since '89. I have been playing chess since I was 7(almost 42 now). Still fascinated with the game. Haven't played an OTB tournament in quite some time(I think dinosaurs were still alive then). No Elo rating to speak of, as I play recreationally, either with family, at the local club or on-line at If you would like to play a game, my user name on is the same as it is here.

   Mar-26-18 Caruana vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
JSYantiss: Fabio is actually not in the lead....Karjakin's draw notwithstanding, he is ahead of Fabio on tiebreaks...
   Dec-31-17 S Zhigalko vs Kirill Shubin, 2017 (replies)
JSYantiss: This one is round 10....the other one is round 9. Odd that the move lists would be identical, with the players reversed on the colors, though.
   Dec-31-17 Kirill Shubin vs S Zhigalko, 2017 (replies)
JSYantiss: This one is round 9....the other one is round 10. Odd that the move lists would be identical, with the players reversed on the colors, though.
   Sep-30-17 A Goganov vs Jobava, 2016
JSYantiss: Walter Glatke, 32. Qxg6 is not possible for White, as you have it written.
   Sep-25-17 Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
JSYantiss: Game 4 is set to be a classical time-control game.
   Apr-06-17 So vs Onischuk, 2017 (replies)
JSYantiss: Is it just me, or is a White knight hanging after 14. Qe2....?
   Jan-03-17 T Mauwa vs R Cecchetti, 1996 (replies)
JSYantiss: Glad I'm not the only one who's scratching their head at White on move 26....
