IM Roman Yankovsky

USCF 2546
FIDE 2455

Roman Yankovsky came to Los Angeles from Russia in 2010, quickly established himself as one of California’s top masters, won the 2011 state championship, and earned the title of International Master. All before age 20!

In 2012, he won two invitational tournaments run by Metropolitan Chess and tied for first in the Pacific Coast Open. This will be only his second tournament of 2013.

Roman is an imaginative player who occasionally experiments with neglected openings. Count on him to produce some exciting games.
