Jeff remembers learning the chess moves from my dad, then playing in some tournaments with friends when in Junior High School. He took a more serious interest as an adult in the 1990s, playing in his first adult tournament in 2004, and he has playing and studying chess consistently since then.

Most of his playing has been online with the Internet Chess Club (ICC) however, especially since covid. His ICC profile: https://app.chessclub.com/Profile/jientho

Besides playing, He is also very interested in and has studied chess theory (including openings) and computer chess. He has a mentioned in the Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences for some of this work: https://oeis.org/A079485.

He also has some chess tutoring experience for about a year.

His career has been as an IT specialist, most recently with Bank of America in Albany. He retired in June after 16 years. He is an RPI grad, BS ‘82 and MS ‘95, both in Computer Science.

He lives with my family in Latham and has two daughters.
