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

The discussion begins on a high with Laurent's incredible victory at the French rapid Championships.

Jan & Peter are in Norway for the 10th edition of Norway Chess. So far they've spotted Magnus Carlsen, Anish Giri & Wesley So in the wild.

The Chessable Masters concluded last week with impressive performances by Ding Liren and Praggnanandhaa.

Richard Rapport's switch to Romania sparks some debate about the ease of players being able to switch countries.

"What's Wrong with FIDE this Week, Peter?" may be coming to an end as Peter announces his plans to run as deputy President and Fix FIDE Every Week.

We end with the big question - who will Laurent nominate as Chicken of the Week?!
