[lang_nl]Schaken[/lang_nl][lang_en]Chess[/lang_en] The Bowmore Way

[lang_nl]Als een Schots whiskymerk besluit om zijn nieuwe website te promoten met een schaakfilmpje, dan zijn wij van ChessVibes niet te beroerd om even te helpen met wat promotie. Want het is toch netjes dat ze Brits kampioen GM Jacob Aagaard hebben weten te strikken om het razend ingewikkelde herdersmat uit te leggen![/lang_nl][lang_en]When a Scottish whisky brand decides to promote their new website with a chess video, then ChessVibes is willing to help them a bit. Because it's not an easy thing to actually get British Champion GM Jacob Aagaard before the camera to explain the incredibly complicated... scholar's mate.[/lang_en]

[lang_nl]Het gaat om Bowmore, hun nieuwe website is hier te vinden en dit is de video waar het om gaat:[/lang_nl][lang_en]We're talking about Bowmore, their new website can be found here and this is the video we were mentioning:[/lang_en]

Some 4 years ago I had a private lesson by Jacob in Copenhagen and after he first poured me a few whiskies he tried to trick me in the same manner. I can testify he really is an expert in this variation.

I think it's a radical improvement that chess/chessplayers are acquiring awkward sponsorships in products and services that have nothing to do with chess and are promoting(?!) chess in some shape, form, or fashion... But something just doesn't feel genuine about this...
