Some time ago, I found these two videos of the 1995 WCC match between Garry Kasparov and Viswanathan Anand. GM Maurice Ashley (USA) and GM Daniel King (United Kingdom) did the commentary. What was nice about these two videos was not only the intensity of the game, but the exciting commentary by Ashley and King. Ashley is known for using sports metaphors in chess and is called the “John Madden of Chess” after the excitable football commentator.
This segment shows that there may be a market for chess commentary. Ashley has also produced a DVD titled, “Speed Chess” featuring a tournament between GMs Hikaru Nakamura, Alexander Shabalov, Larry Christiansen and Joel Benjamin. Here you get a taste of Ashley’s exciting style!
