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

Lawrence is a wonderful, fun guy to work with. It is always a great pleasure commentating with him.
