My interests in chess tend towards the organizing and directing (that is, being an arbiter).  I am a National Tournament Director for US Chess as well as an International Arbiter for both FIDE and ICCF.  I was arbiter for the US Championship in 2007 and 2018, and I have been chief organizer for the US Championship for Blind Players the last five years.  I was chief arbiter for the 2022 Canadian Senior Championship in Halifax.


Several years ago Gary Walters, who was then Vice President of what was then USCF suggested that I might really enjoy engine assisted chess (what is known to SchemingMind as Advanced Chess) on ICCF, and I trusted him, so I gave it a try.  To my surprise, I found that there is a lot more to it than just running one's engine for hours at a position and then playing whatever moves the engine suggests.  I also found that I had a certain aptitude for it, having earned the Correspondence Chess Master title in 2020.


If you're interested, you can look at my page there at  You'll be able to see my record and my public game history, just to give you an idea of how interesting it can be.  I look forward to sharing "Advanced Chess" with you, and will happily answer any questions.
