The third-EVER episode of the Chicken Chess Club by GMs Jan Gustafsson, Laurent Fressinet & Peter Heine Nielsen.

First this week, the boys discuss the Champions Chess Tour & Magnus Carlsen's failure to keep up with Polish superstar Jan-Krzysztof Duda.

They discuss Fabiano Caruana winning the American Cup, the start of the Grand Chess Tour & the return of Alireza Firouzja. The Sigeman supertournament starts this week with friends of the show Jorden van Foreest & Nils Grandelius taking part.

Anish Giri is now a Play Magnus ambassador - nobody is surprised that PMG would sign such an icon of the sport.

Our popular segment "What's Wrong With FIDE This Week, Peter?" returns with discussion of the upcoming election, the Candidates spots & Sergey Karjakin.

Our unpopular segment "Tales From the Training Camps" also returns with some very controversial stories!

Finally, Chickens of the Week lives up to its name with our 3 chickens showing their... chickenness.
