Quick heads-up: Smerdon back on Chess.FM!

A very quick note to say that I’ll be one of the Chess.FM commentators for tomorrow’s semi final matches in the World Chess Cup in Khanty Mansiysk, Russia.  Feel free to chuck the online radio stream on in the background to add a little ambience to your day as I wax lyrical about all things vaguely chess-related.

Games start at 10.00 am GMT on Tuesday 15 September.  Jump on board!

David Smerdon is a chess grandmaster from Brisbane, Australia. David attended Anglican Church Grammar School and Melbourne University. To qualify for the title of Grandmaster, a player must achieve three Grandmaster norm performances, and a FIDE Elo rating over 2500. Late in 2007, Smerdon achieved his third and final Grandmaster norm. In the July 2009 FIDE rating list his rating passed 2500, so he qualified for the title of Grandmaster. He is the fourth Australian to become a Grandmaster, after Ian Rogers, Darryl Johansen and Zhao Zong-Yuan. In 2009, Smerdon won the Queenstown Chess Classic tournament.
