    It's a Wijk aan Zee-heavy episode this week with Jan & Peter working as seconds for different top players at the tournament! The episode was recorded during the Giri-Carlsen so discussion of that will have to wait until next week. Laurent has also been falling the tournament closely by providing expert non-engine-assisted commentary with Peter Svidler for the first two rounds.

    We even managed to answer some of your deep and insightful questions (no deep and insightful answers, though).

There was a lot to discuss in this action-packed event, with some exciting chess interrupted by questionable arbiter decisions, Magnus Carlsen arriving 2.5 minutes late for a 3-minute game and a strictly enforced dresscode.
