Tune-in for Chess Talk with IM John Watson on ICC Chess.FM. John’s weekly 60+ minute show (members only) will feature an interview with leading chess personalities.

John’s guest this week (Tue., 13 Nov.) is IrishRussian Grandmaster Alexander Baburin. Originally born in Gorky, Russia, in 1967, Alexander relocated with his family to Dublin, Ireland in 1993. He is an experienced player, coach and writer on the game. Alexander was also manager and second for a couple of years to Alexander Morozevich.

He sells antiquarian chess books and runs his own chess school in Dublin, offering chess classes in schools. But his biggest contribution to the chess world is unquestionably his popular daily chess newsletter Chess Today, a venture he started in November 2000, and to-date has reached 2561 issues.
