Patrick Wolff played his first chess tournament at the age of nine. He won the U.S. Junior (under 20) Championship twice. He became an International Grandmaster, the highest title one can earn, in 1990, and has gone on to win many tournaments, including the U.S. Championship twice. He is also the author of Kasparov versus Anand- The Inside Story of the 1995 World Chess Tournament, the book based on his coaching of Viswanathan Anand, the Indian chess superstar.
