EP#30: FM Jon Jacobs

This episode touches on FM Jon Jacobs' 50+ years as an amateur competitor, his pending upsets book The Fish That Roared, his time as a pioneer anti-cheating activist during the mid-2000s, the dozen Chess Life articles he has authored since 2005, and his new project in collaboration with IM Yury Lapshun to drive international chess tourism to important locations in chess history, starting with a few sites in the New York City area. (For an introduction to the latter, see the December 2020 Chess Life article, “Pugilists at Rest,” which provides detailed directions for visiting the graves of Steinitz and Lasker.)
