Chess Fans have said: The historical introduction let us know the ideas behind virtually every move Black makes in the Najdorf English Attack. This made it largely unnecessary to give a bunch of variations (we could produce ourselves). A wonderful way to educate someone quickly on an opening, even one as complex as this variation.

GM Bryan Smith grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, and currently splits his time between Novi Sad, Serbia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Some of his accomplishments include first place in the 2008 National Chess Congress, 2009 National Chess Congress, 2010 Philadelphia International, and 2011 Limpedea Cup. He was on the national champion UMBC chess team from 1999 to 2001, and became a GM in 2013. Bryan is the first-ever Grandmaster from Alaska!
