#38 - Wijk Rounds 1-4, Updated Hair Ranking, Questions From The People

The 38th episode of the Chicken Chess Club by GMs Jan Gustafsson, Laurent Fressinet & Peter Heine Nielsen.


It's a Wijk aan Zee-heavy episode this week with Jan & Peter working as seconds for different top players at the tournament! The episode was recorded during the Giri-Carlsen so discussion of that will have to wait until next week. Laurent has also been falling the tournament closely by providing expert non-engine-assisted commentary with Peter Svidler for the first two rounds.

We even managed to answer some of your deep and insightful questions (no deep and insightful answers, though).
