British Chess Magazine  |  January 2016  


Have you seen the latest British Chess Magazine? It’s very special as it is dedicated exclusively to a celebration of the hugely successful London Chess Classic. Moreover this edition marks an exciting step forward in the 135 year history of the magazine. Apart from being given a brand new look, the reloaded January BCM, now powered by Chess Informant, offers you more content, more pages and more writers, among them some of the top UK chess grandmasters.
Magnus Carlsen, winner of both the London Classic and million dollar Grand Tour, takes pride of place on the cover. Then we get straight down to business with a leading article by English grandmaster Luke McShane on How Magnus Won. Here, Luke annotates the key moments in those games by the World Champion which proved decisive in this landmark Category 22 tournament.
Carlsen’s great rival, Anish Giri, has had a year crowned with success, culminating in his qualification for the forthcoming World Championship Candidates tournament. Yet at the end of the season he was finally stopped by French GM Maxime Vachier-LaGrave – and the rules! – in his quest to win the Grand Tour. Another of our new writers, world no.14, GM Pentala Harikrishna, provides us with further explanation and enlightenment.
More games from the Classic are analyzed by England’s best known Match of the Day commentator, Andrew Martin, while a survey of the openings employed by the elite grandmasters is presented in a systematic format by young IM and outstanding Cambridge University student, Yang-Fan Zhou.
