Aaron Grabinsky is a 21-year old National Master currently studying Mathematics and Computer Science as a Senior at Webster University. Originally from a small town of 4,000 on the southern Oregon coast, Aaron has achieved all three required International Master norms, and is looking to chase down the last few rating points to reach 2400 to claim the title. One of his best results was shared first in the 2017 Chicago Class Championships where he defeated GM Vladimir Georgiev with black in the final round in a must-win situation. Outside of tournament chess, his favorite hobbies include table tennis, working out, and of course, playing blitz and bullet online. He is also a semi-professional online chess instructor and has been working as such for almost four years now. After graduation from Webster University, he plans to go on to study Civil Engineering back in Oregon, and of course, continue to pursue chess as a serious hobby.
