his position comes from my game against Rudy Tia (2092), Round 1, DCC Tuesday Night Championship, January 3, 2017.
In the position on the right it is White to move.
Yesterday the January 2017 issue of the Colorado Chess Informant came out.
It was exciting for me, because I am on the cover!
You can see the issue, and read it for free at http://www.coloradochess.com (it is in PDF format).
Last fall, after Millionaire Chess 3, David Llada (http://www.davidllada.com/), who is a famous photographer, posted a bunch of pictures that he took at the tournament, including one of me.
Fred Spell, who is the outstanding editor of the Colorado Chess Informant magazine, had the idea to use this as a cover photo, and asked me to write an article about the Millionaire tournaments.
Fred got permission from David to use the photo, and I think the cover looks really cool.
I posted it on my facebook page, and got over 100 likes, and some funny comments.
Here are some of my favorites:
Thanks everyone :)

I emailed this game to Dragan Plakalovic, who works with me at Raytheon, and he wrote "This entire second half of the game was a lesson in pinning; you exploited every single pin possible! I would've smashed the pieces, broken the board, and left home. LOL!"
