Q&A with Chess Legend Peter Svidler

Peter Svidler is one of the younger legends in the chess24 Legends of Chess, but the 44-year-old is already an 8-time Russian Chess Champion after first winning that title as an 18-year-old back in 1994. He's also a World Cup winner and 3-time chess960 World Champion, and chess24 Premium members now have a chance to ask him a question for his Q&A session this Friday 24 July at 21:00 CEST. Simply leave a question in the comments section below

Peter is not only one of the most talented dynamic chess players of our age but a brilliant speaker, who has made a second career as a commentator, as well as authoring five video series here on chess24, including the monumental The Grünfeld according to Svidler

The Q&A session is part of a feast for chess fans that sees all 10 players in the chess24 Legends of Chess playing both Banter Blitz and giving a Q&A session. The upcoming action, including Ian Nepomniachtchi playing Banter Blitz today, is as follows:
