It’s Podcast Tuesday on Chess Life Online, and since this month we have five Tuesdays, we have a Ladies Knight bonus clip for you. Jennifer Shahade talks to podcast host, author of 20 books, investor and blogger James Altucher about something his followers may know a little less about: James is also a US Chess master. He explains to Jennifer his swan song in chess two decades ago, at the hands of now seven-time US Women’s Champion Grandmaster Irina Krush. Jennifer also talks to James the importance of tough female competition and how much of an influence Irina had on her career.
Podcast Tuesday at US Chess is Cover Stories with Dan Lucas on the first Tuesday of the month, One Move at a Time on the second Tuesday of the month, Ladies Knight with Jen Shahade on the third Tuesday and The Chess Underground with Pete Kariaganis on the final Tuesday.
