Now on our 21st podcast, Ben and Adam discuss chess in the UK before, during and post-pandemic. Will we get back to over the board chess, and if so - when? Is there a future for talented players in the online world?

This is a bonus episode, enjoy!

Excellent podcast. Worth listening if anyone hasn't done so already.

The kind of chat which makes me pine for the time when exceptional people like Speelman and Nunn could actually consider chess as a viable way to make a living.

thanks Nick! I know what you mean, and I hope that we can get back to that at some point. In the mean time I am one of the Deputy Chief Arbiters at the hybrid event here - https://www.europechess.org/european-hy ... world-cup/ - and it has been surprisingly engaging!

Good luck with the hybrid, Adam.

Anthony is clearly one of those exceptional people, but I doubt he would ever have considered chess as a viable way to make a living. Time has moved on.

I know money isn't everything, but most people aren't going to choose chess if it entails a life of penury. More likely to choose tech and car parking!
