Christopher Yoo

Honorary Chess Advisor, Executive Board Member

I am a 15-year old Grandmaster who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am working hard to become a professional chess player. My accomplishments include winning the California State Championship at age 11 and, at the age of 13, the U.S Cadets Championship, which is the national championship for players under the age of 16. Besides playing, I enjoy composing endgames studies in my free time. I finished 3rd in the 2019 FIDE World Cup of Composing and won the gold medal in the 2019 Youth Composing Challenge. My USCF rating is 2630 and my FIDE rating is 2534. I became a Grandmaster when I was 14 years old. I enthusiastically support the mission of FEMchess and hope to be able to help them achieve their goals.
