Master level commentary of games in progress will be operated throughout the Championships. The MCC are currently assembling a team of commentators and have already secured the services of two ex-Australian Champions, three IM’s in total:
IM Robert Jamieson
IM Guy West
IM Leonid Sandler
There is the chance that some of these great players might compete in the Championship in which case they won’t be commentating. We will have a full list of commentators in advance of the Championship, including a schedule for who will be commentating on each day.
Listening to the thought processes and analytical skills of top players is a great way to develop one’s understanding of the game, so for those not playing, and those fast finishers, this will be a highlight of the tournament.
