Here I am with former World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov; at the time he was reigning FIDE World Champion and I was the reigning New Jersey Chess Champion. (February 15, 1998 -- Parsippany, New Jersey)

Here are some pictures of me at the 1997 U.S. Chessathon on the Intrepid

In 1997, at the age of 19, I became the first teenager in 20 years to become the New Jersey State Chess Champion. These are from the official flier prior to the start of the 1998 championship one year later.

Here I am holding the championship trophy at the end of the 1998 New Jersey Open -- successfully defending the title I won in 1997, and at the age of 20 becoming the youngest person with at least two New Jersey State Championships -- a record that still stands. (September 7, 1998 -- Somerset, New Jersey)

Here I am playing against the Harvard Square "Chessmaster", Murray Turnbull in a 5-minute blitz game during the Harvard Chess Club vs. The Chessmater blitz match. The match ended tied at 2-2, and I beat Turnbull. (October 5, 1998 -- Harvard Square {outside Au Bon Pan})

This is an advertisement for a simultaneous exhibition I was invited to give at Boston University in 1999; by the grace of God, I was able to win all of my games.
