Ian Wilkinson will ask the General Assembly to ask Kirsan Ilyumzhinov to resign.

"Primarily because we are concerned about the state that FIDE is in," Wilkinson told Chess.com. "At the very least the motion will generate the necessary discussion and debate."


The 42nd Chess Olympiad is underway in Baku, and the full Chess.com news team is on the scene.

Chess.com journalists FM Mike Klein and Peter Doggers update you on the first half of the Olympiad.


GM Robert Hess shows which move from the Olympiad became Move of the Week.

It's from the game Adhiban-Minero (India-Costa Rica), and it's almost an endgame study. And, of course, this week's ChessCenter also has a Bunder of the Week!


Magnus Carlsen appears in new commercial in Norway.

FM Mike Klein tries to give his interpretation, and has a tip for Sergey Karjakin!


This, and much more, in episode 48:
