Chess Digest, Inc. listed Tim Sawyer as a Research Assistant in the 1993 book on the London System by Andrew Soltis. His copy has a handwritten note inside the front cover: “To Tim Sawyer, Thanks for helping make this book possible. Ken Smith.” Tim had loaned his copy of Tim Harding’s book on the London and BDG to that famous gambit player and publisher Ken Smith. After the Soltis book was published, Tim Sawyer added the London System to his repertoire. The author played it for years on the Internet Chess Club using “SuperSolid” as his handle. He played it against many masters. Sawyer played the Caro-Kann as Black. The London was a Caro-Kann Attack! It’s easy to play chess.
