Tim Sawyer’s Blog

     I sometimes surf Blogger and other places looking for interesting Blogs and every once in a while I find one. Read 40 years of chess stories by correspondence master and BDG author by Rev. Tim Sawyer; that’s what the Blog heading says.  
     I never heard of Mr. Sawyer, sorry to say, but I recently discovered his excellent Blog which he has been writing since 2011. He is also author of a book on the Blackmar published in 1999, but I don’t think you’ll want it…new costs $360 and used $61!!! It’s out of date anyway.
     He has also authored a couple of other books, A Patzer’s Story, which is no longer available and A Patzer's Journey: Applying the rules from A Patzer's Story.  He is also the author of some self-help books. See Amazon HERE.
     In addition to covering the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit, he’s posted on the Benko Gambit, Bird’s Opening, Budapest, Colle, Elephant Gambit, Goring Gambit, Grob Attack, Jerome Gambit to name a few as well as a host of ‘legitimate’ openings and defenses. Be sure to check out his Blog HERE!


  1. Search Amazon authors for "Tim Sawyer", which is Timothy E. Sawyer noted by FIDE. I am not the author of the Timothy A. Sawyer chess books. Please do not confuse us.

  2. Thanks...sorry for the confusion!
