  GrahamClayton: Collins is a qualified barrister.
May-05-12  midknightblue: one of my favorite players. Great books and dvd's. My favorites are his e4 repertoire dvd, his c3 sicilian dvd. Waiting for him to earn his third GM norm.
Pretty amazing that he is a full-time barrister (lawyer) and such a successful player, who is also cranking out quality chess dvd's and books.
