GM Levon Aronian   part 2  FREE PREVIEW | Full show (Members-Only)

This month  (Tue., 7 June ), replacing IM John Watson for now as guest host of Chess Talk will be international chess journalist Janis Nisii (Janis on ICC).  Janis lives and works in Italy and has reported on several major elite tournaments for magazines such as New In Chess, Chess (UK), 64 (Russia), Europe Echecs (France), Jaque (Spain), Schach (Germany) and Torre & Cavallo (Italy).

And her very special guest in a two-part Chess Talk special needs no introduction, as it is world No.3 and recent candidate Levon Aronian.  Levon Aronian has led tiny chess mad Armenia to two Olympiad Golds in 2006 and 2008 and his most recent victory was winning the final Amber Tournament in Monte Carlo.
