Issue Cover

British Chess Magazine  |  September 2021  


Variations, overtures, pianissimo, compositions, tempo, unheard melodies, score, improvisations. Words and phrases familiar to chess players – and to all who love music! The leading article in the September issue of BCM focuses on the connection between music and chess – from philosophical aspects to practical questions. If chess games are the real music to your ears, then IM Shaun Taulbut and GM Aleksandar Colovic have got you covered, with the selection of the best games from the British Championships to the Sinquefield Cup and the World Cup. Fide Director-General, Emil Sutovsky, talks to BCM editor Milan Dinic about how the pandemic has affected chess and the key events in the chess world now. Pete Tamburro writes about the Scotch Gambit in the Openings for Amateurs column, and GM Ray Keene writes about the famous Mike Basman. The September issue also has a selection of problems and endgame studies, to improve your play, while Alan Smith takes a look at the historical path of the Giuoco Piano in the Quotes & Queries article.
