More of The Full English Breakfast
Over the last few years, Lawrence established himself as the voice of live chess broadcasting. I have some experience in this line of work,and can testify first-hand how hard it is to balance being informative and entertaining, and keep the audience interested for hours on end.Lawrence carries it off with aplomb, and great flair. The fact that he is a very nice bloke as well is an added bonus.
Grandmaster Peter Svidler, 7-time Russian Champion
Lawrence is a natural commentator, he brings a great mix of excitement, humour and education to any event.
Grandmaster Mickey Adams, England Number 1
The silent symbolism of chess needs distinctive voices to bring the game's exquisite tension to life. Lawrence has that kind of voice; an engaging mixture of playful inquiry and serious fun.
Grandmaster Jonathan Rowson, Author & British chess champion 2004-6
Lawrence is a wonderful, fun guy to work with. It is always a great pleasure commentating with him.
Grandmaster Nigel Short, Former World Championship Finalist and England Number 2

My two cents: If final game finishes in under 2 hours, have playoffs the same day. If it's a long fight, rest day "deserved" #worldchess2016
