In an attempt not to have their guest walking out within a few minutes of the start of their show tonight at 20.30 Central European Time, IMs Jacob Aagaard and John Shaw will talk nicely to each other and maybe even to the audience (only if strictly needed).

The object of the show will as always be the latest events in the chess world. The guest will be Russian top trainer Mark Dvoretsky, who is in the UK to give a series of talks. Do not miss out this opportunity to hear the bestselling author of such books as the School of Chess Excellence 1-4 and Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual share his logic on Playchess tonight.


Mark Dvoretsky's DVD is available in the ChessBase Shop

From a home studio in Glasgow, International Master Jacob Aagaard and IM John Shaw will comment on recent and past chess events in a weekly Radio Show on the ChessBase server. The show runs on Wednesdays at 20:30 server time (20.30h CET, 18.30h GMT, 13.30 US East Coast time).

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 (Not a good, but a very good book with many interesting suggestions – Nigel Short and Learn from the Legends – Chess Champions at their Best by Romanian GM Mihail Marin, of which Jonathan Rowson wrote the following in New in Chess 1/2005. "It must be a strong candidate for any existing book of the year award, and if it doesn't win any, someone should create a new award so that the book's quality is properly acknowledged."


On recent training DVDs IM 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.
