Day one of filming Today in Chess has just wrapped up. While the concept of the show is fresh, most of the crew that orchestrates the production has had ample experience doing this type of stuff with one glaring exception: me! But before I get too much into that, I might as well talk about a pretty exciting round of chess that just happened in round 8 of the 2016 Candidates Tournament.
