Jean-Yves Aubone

Anyone ever heard of him?

He's put a pretty impressive string of results together over the past 3 weeks. SF in USA F16 (l. to Helgeson), won USA F17 with wins over Fugate and Koniecko, and just made it to the SF of USA F18. He'll play Blake Strode next, whom I've never heard of and is unranked.

Aubone is only 20 which is why he caught my attention. He didn't have a particularly impressive junior career, which makes his recent results even more interesting.

EDIT: I just found out he's starting his sophomore year at Floria State.

EDIT #2: He's in the final vs. Tigran Martirosyan (ARM), who's ranked 875.
