The F.E.B. is back and so am I
The F.E.B. #7 is out! IM Lawrence Trent and GM Steven Gordon analyze Nakamura’s triumph by the seaside, what Levon Aronian’s missing, Anish Giri’s new celebrity, plus Magnus Carlsen’s “Wii” habits, Polish tongue twisters, Wes So contemplates university, Luke McShane on a proper Full English Breakfast, and more!
About the Full English Breakfast
Mission: Bring the serious chess news analysis. VERY serious, and not at all witty. Definitely not tongue in cheek.
Origins: The Full English Breakfast started life as a late night brainstorm at the 2009 GibTel (now Tradewise) Chess Festival in Gibraltar. Trent and Macauley struck up a conversation about things missing in the chess media, and hit upon the idea of doing a podcast combining the serious with the slightly sophomoric. Trent quickly brought in his pal Stevie G. dramatically raising both the intellectual and the dialectical heft of the new ensemble.
And the rest, as they say, is hysterical.
The Full English Breakfast #7 has exclusive audio from Wijk aan Zee, featuring Hikaru Nakamura, Levon Aronian, Anish Giri, Luke McShane, David Navara and Wesley So.
