I have to say something about this guy. His performance in this Aussie Championships is just mind blowing. 2700+ rating performance and a GM norm leave us dumb struck. What has he been eating? Whatever it is, he's eating something.
And so, in the fine tradition of the Philippines, we feel compelled to bestow upon international master David Smerdon a nick name. For his attacking prowess against the NSW champ, Andrew Bird, we hereby call David the Aussie "Atakador".
See the game here.
