The Chicken Chess Club

Jan Gustafsson, Laurent Fressinet & Peter Heine Nielsen

This podcast is brought to you by Chessable, the number one site for chess improvement.  Recently, they published a course by my dear friend International Master Lawrence Trent.  It’s a complete white repertoire based on 1. Nc3.  It’s packed with stunning novelties and the very latest theory.  Lawrence has selflessly taken time out from his road to becoming a Grandmaster to deliver this course to you.  He’s worked TIRELESSLY to deliver the best 1. Nc3 course that money can buy.  Head to to check out this incredible work and much more.
