Keeping up-to-date

#28 "Rookie": Irish News 9th November 1983

Are you keen on keeping up to date on the latest chess news and games? Books become outdated, and chess columns such as this one provide local chess news. But what chess magazines and periodicals can you order from your newsagent?

  • International Chess, a glossy, monthly magazine, features tournament results, chess problems, Game of the Month and opening studies.
  • The latest chess opening theory is contained in the New Chess Player, which is better laid-out than its rival Chess Informant.

In Britain, the two main contenders for providing the best international, as well as British chess games and news are Chess and British Chess Magazine - Chess is a brash in style, but British Chess Magazine is more authoritative.

Ireland's longest-running chess periodical is Fiacla Fichille, a lively survey of Irish chess, available through Mr. Tom O'Sullivan, 282, Seapark, Malahide, Co. Dublin with annual subscription IR£3.60. Also I would encourage other local chess clubs to follow the Newtownards example of setting up a club magazine, hand-written, photocopied and featuring local members own articles and games. Its fifth edition included the game below: after an 'ard struggle, "Ross can weigh" his chances of victory and wins.
