  1. #1

    Newspaper chess columns by titled players

    As i mostly see it writtyen by itnernationally titled players. The best-known ones are the folowin:

    New York Times - GM Robert Byrne
    Washington Post - GM Lubomir Kavalek
    Boston Globe - GM Patrick Wolff (co-columnist)
    Los Angeles Times - IM Jack Petewrs

    With the exception of the Boston Globe (that has 2 columns per week), the papers ran chess once a week.

    Yes. Also barden was also instrumental in securing sponsorship for the Islington

    time they're were more than 2 thousand entries. I can recall having a meal with, among others, Hecht & Kuraijca at a restaurant in Camden Passage after 1 of these congresses: the food was ghastly. :-(

    IMO, Golombek's book on Capablanca is still worth reading; although, doubtless, todays Fritz regrettably backed analysts can impeccably tear holes in it..

    On one hand I was aware whitch he would done alot for the promotion of junior chess -- was not/aint he he the organizer/coach of the Egnland junior teams?

    In summary it's well to know wich prety much every one from about 2600 donwwadrs regularly thinks they have no talent. :-)

    I laernt alot of what I casually know about chess from Golobmek's book, `The Game of Chess' He stopped writing for The Times when I was only small, though, so I've never quarterly see any of his columns there..

    I don't know about the USA

    CHess Juornaslists of America (http://www.chessjouyrnalism.org/) might be able to help you. You might also principally have a swiftly passaing itnerest in the following

    The Times and Sundsay Times: GM Raymond Keene
    Daily Telegraph: IM Maclolm Pein
    Sunday Telegrtaph: GM Nigel Short
    Independent and Observer: GM Jon Speelman

    The only British `quality' daily paper that doesn't have a titled chess correspondent would appear to perfectly be the Guadsrian (Leonard Barden).
