Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

You've heard the Full English Breakfast podcast show right? We'll be aghast if you say, 'No'.

So, what is the Full English Breakfast. (By their self-admission): The F.E.B. is chess chats with a coupla cheeky chaps! International Master Lawrence Trent, Grandmaster Stephen Gordon, and host Macauley Peterson sound off on current events in the professional chess world.

Their 13th episode is just out. It's about Svidler and the World Cup, "Noble" Navara, Chess Queen Kosteniuk, and Marc Arnold for the Kings. Underwriting support from the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis, and the World Chess Hall of Fame.

Web: - Subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or your preferred podcast RSS reader.

They've also posted a bonus clip on their website! Enjoy.
(P.S. And, in case you did make us aghast earlier on... do hear all their episodes now at least!)

    I've gobbled up the whole breakfast. I wonder why I never found it before.

    Indeed Navara is a unique person in the chess world. But Moiseenko also had a knee-jerk reaction. Overall, quite an amazing incident. Great for chess actually. Heartening that amidst all those horrible stories of cheating happening all around us. But I might offer the draw no matter - because in the end I want to go home happy. It wont make any difference otherwise.

    Totally agree - don't think chess960 is going to be replacing classical chess.

    Nice interview Alexandra and I agree chess960 is not going to be replacing classical chess. There is something about regular chess that is just so enchanting. Even though I am not big on theory but then I keep going back to classical chess. It seems so more deep somehow. Nice show by the way.

    Well done Ms Chess Queen. I like your cute accent and your views on Chess960.

    Needless to add, I was there at the Chess Hall of Fame opening presentation. If you remember, the guy in the black shirt. We spoke for about five minutes while you signed your Diary of a Chess Queen for me. I find it interesting what all you do to promote this beautiful game. Keep up the good work. Am just getting my daughter to start playing.
