On this week's show (15th of December) IM Aagaard and IM Shaw will argue over current events in chess. There is a match, just terminated, US Champion Nakamura and the Ukrainian wonderboy Karjakin. In Israel a very strong six players all-play all is going on, where the top rated local hero Sutovsky is disappointingly on last place with only one point from four rounds.

For this weeks show the two hosts will have IM Ari Ziegler, the final member of Quality Chess Europe in the studio as guest to bring some sanity to the show.


Ari Ziegler at the board. Is he looking Russian? Or sleeping?

Glasgow 3rd floor Chess Radio

From a home studio in Glasgow, International Masters Jacob Aagaard and John Shaw will comment on recent and past chess events in a weekly Radio Show on the Chessbase server, starting Wednesday the 17th of November at 20:30 server time (20.30 CET, 7.30 pm GMT, 14.30 US East Coast time).

On this week's show (8th of December) IM Aagaard and IM Shaw will again discuss current events in chess. The main focus of this show will be the 2005 (!) American Championship, but with their usual scrutiny they will keep their eyes on all current event and games. All games will have been played within the last ten days, and the show there tries to present the best Chess from the last week.

IM Jacob Aagaard is one of the best known chess writers. His personal favourites among his own works are Excelling at Chess Calculation and Excelling at Technical Chess, both published by Everyman Chess, as well as Experts vs. the Sicilian by Quality Chess Europe and Attacking Chess 1&2 (CDs) by Chessbase. Jacob has in 2004 made three GM norms and hopes to gain the necessary 50 Elo points for the GM title in 2005.

IM John Shaw has written two books for Everyman Chess and co-edited Experts vs. the Sicilian. He has represented Scotland on many occasions, recently in the Olympiad in Calvià, where he obtained his second GM-norm. As John has once had 2500 in Elo, it is his hope that he will complete his Grandmaster title in 2005 with a third GM-norm.

Together with Jacob, John constitutes two thirds of the new chess publisher Quality Chess Europe which has published Experts vs. the Sicilian by ten different authors and Learn from the Legends – Chess Champions at their Best by Romanian GM Mihail Marin.


On recent training DVDs GM Jacob Aagaard uses our new Chess Media System to teach the most important principles of positional play. His DVD lectures deal with weak squares, good and bad pieces, prophylaxis, pawn weaknesses, and much, much more. They are concepts which belong in the toolbox of every chess player. The lectures are followed by exercises, in which you have to look for solutions yourself. There are hours of high class video training on each DVD. Price: € 29.99.
