Chess Fans have said: I think this was one of your best lectures, Bryan. I love this type of game…where, at a glance, Karpov appeared to have no compensation for the pawn yet, out of nothing, he made magic happen on the board.

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!
