Hello, I am international master Bryan Smith, from the U.S. and sometimes living in Europe. I offer lessons, training games, and analysis of your games.
I grew up in Alaska and am the highest rated player ever from there. Some of the tournaments I have won include: 2011 Limpedea Cup (Romania), 2011 Citta di Erba (Italy), 2011 Easter International (Serbia), 2010 Philadelphia International (USA), 2009 National Chess Congress (USA), 2008 National Chess Congress (USA), 2008 King's Island Open, 2006 US Masters (USA) and others. I have two grandmaster norms.
Training games will include a short analysis after the game. Lessons begin with us analysing your games to see where are your strong and weak points, and then we go from there. Written commentary of your games is in about the same level of depth as the main games in my articles, analyzed from a human perspective (I will not use a computer to analyze your games), and will include a summary of the game at the end as well as an assessment of your strengths and weaknesses based on that game.
