Product: GM Rafael Leitao's Sicilian Najdorf

Wow - just wow. Mr. Logozar has put in an incredible amount of work into this repertoire, and it shows. There is amazingly deep coverage of each of white's main options against the Sicilian Najdorf. It's very reasonably priced for the content available, and this is possibly THE repertoire to buy on chessable.

This repertoire is absolutely fantastic! It is filled with interesting ideas and cool, powerful lines. I find the recommendation against 6.Bg5 especially intriguing... definitely a 5-star repertoire. Keep up the good work Logozar!

This repertoire is fantastic--easily the best I've seen on Chessable so far (even with the new Benko book that was recently released). The ideas behind each line are clearly explained, which is wonderful both for learning the strategy and for memorizing the lines themselves.

Just finished this book and I just loved it. It has brought back my belief in the Sicilian defence. Deserves 5 stars. Only wish it was longer. Many thanks logozar.

Product: Fighting Anti-Sicilians for the Najdorf player

This book actually covers the lines of importance. Every single line that I’ve ever faced has been covered, and I really wish I had studied the reperotire before playing those people (I got painfully upset recently when I didn’t know how to respond to an Anti-Sicilian).

Product: Crush the Dragon!

A great project by logozar, as usual. As always, LogozRAR tries his best to analyze his lines in depth, cover practically any playable sideline, and most importantly, explain his moves. If you study this, you’ll almost for certain get a huge advantage against any sort of Dragon, except if you happen to face a cheater, or me.

Product: 1.e4: A complete White repertoire!
This product has not been released yet.

I am not lying when I say that I was truly awed by the amount of lines that “1.e4: A Comprehensive White Repertoire!” had in just the 1…e5 section.  If you want to quickly look up what to play against the Dragon, Philidor, Ruy Lopez (Archangelsk variation), or even something like the Damiano Defense within 1 minute, this is the book for you. It contains so much theory with explanations, that I could not help but applaud to Elijah and tell him what a great job he has done. If you wish to learn bunches of theory, and actually understand it (with master games and commentary) then buy this repertoire, or you will be sad.

My coach is Elijah Logozar who is logozar on I experienced big rating surges with his help. He is a great coach and he teaches from his heart - he doesn't rip you off like some other coaches.

Elijah Logozar is very knowledgeable and taught me about the classics of chess. I learned so much in a short period of time and had so much fun. Although he is young, he has an insurmountable grasp of the game. My rating improved only after a few weeks. Now my rating is 1930 and I feel comfortable and confident out of the opening. For the time and cost and friendship, no one can compare.

I recently took an introductory lesson from Elijah. This guy is going to be a star. He is very young, but I felt like I was learning from a seasoned Expert or Master (which he will be soon). Great prices, but they are going to go up. He actually spent more time than agreed upon in order to make sure I was pleased and grasping the reasoning behind the moves in the Sicilian. Highly recommended. Right now he is still offering a free introductory lesson. He doesn't try to push his opening repertoire on you...he tailors the lessons to your level, weaknesses, and desires.

Elijah is a very wonderful person, and I could not ask for a better coach. He helped me very much with my openings, and I feel very confident playing them. An example - I recently beat a 2000 USCF rated 4 times with the prep Elijah had given me against his particular opening (The Grand Prix). Elijah can help teach you opening ideas, such as are very hard to find in a book. My practical play increased by at least 100 rating points after having lessons with him. He also helped me analyze some of my games, and I learned a lot from my own mistakes, that he helped point out. In addition, Elijah is very encouraging, and that alone makes him a joy to be around, a pleasure to work with, and a most qualified coach. I could not recommend a better coach for you.
