LOL that was very entertaining. Good to see some MCC players getting TV time and I particularly enjoyed Leonid's lesson! But where was Michael Baron? :)

Nice piece of coverage. I liked the advice that people should come along together.

The club should, after getting ch.31's permission, consider posting the video on its website.

The following players make appearances in the video:

- Kerry Stead, playing at the board in green top;
- David Beaumont, playing Kerry;
- Carl Gorka (left) and Igor Goldenberg (right) playing at board 1;
- Grant Szuveges, being interviewed by presenter Jackie Doran;
- Anthony Hain, in blue shirt setting the clock;
- Leonid Sandler, giving Jackie a chess lesson at the kibitzers' tables;
- Victor Kildisas, in khaki jacket, and Doug Lindberg, in blue jumper, playing each other;
- David Topol (younger guy) and Bill Jordan (older guy) watching Victor and Doug's game.

I thought it was great. Grant was excellent. Leonid used a Fool's mate example I'm sure because it's short simple and obvious. The video is not aimed at established chess players but at attracting people to the game and the Club.
