No. He's never been associated with the AF4C. In addition, the AF4C
does not teach in any schools in Tacoma where he works.

Guess what?

He is rated 1133 (based on 6 games).

As usual, his school has a loose idea of what constitutes a chess
master.

Not surprising at all. A real chess master would have gone for an 11 year
old, not a 14 year old.

The article actually describes him as a "master chess teacher."
Perhaps they meant something like "certified chess instructor," which
one can be without playing at anything near master strength. In any
event, it seems a poor choice of words by the reporter.
Speaking of this sort of thing, have there been any recent
developments in the Snyder case?

He's out on bail so he can molest other boys.

This 1100-rated player possesses the same level of expertise as most
"master" teachers in this country hold in their subjects. In other words,
none.
