To quote highly-respected British author Gary Lane, writing about one of Alan’s wins:
“(Alan Goldsmith) is an Australian who specializes in odd openings and delights in playing them. Of course, moving the knight twice should be frowned upon, but Black is doing something rare in this era of professional chess – he is playing for fun. “

Suitable for new players or those returning to chess after an absence.
