Great Podcast!

Alexandra is the current Chess World Champion - so she knows what she is talking about. I don't think you will find many sports where you can get tips for free from the current world champion!

Not only is she a great player, she makes the studies sound interesting, while still going into detail. She has a good voice and delivery, so you won't get bored listening to her all day!

Best chess podcast on iTunes!

Brilliant video podcast !

Hi Alex, I am an ok player, and love chess.. downloaded this podcast today and it is brilliant.. brilliant because
- very clear commentary which tells the viewer/listener the reasoning behind all the combinations and moves
- It is well paced
- if the difficulty level is too high one can always pause/rewind listen again !
- good insights/tips for average players
- very interesting positions and stages

Some things which would be nice to have :-
- in one of your video podcasts you show a small hand cursor to point to the pieces when commenting on the move.. this is an excellent way to keep the viewers eyes in sync with what you are saying.. could you have this in all your podcasts atleast on those which have a lot of pieces on it so following the moves is easier.
- the alphabets/numbers do not show I guess due to the size of the screen.. if there is any way to show this it will be nice

This is a great podcast and I highly recommend it for everyone !
