Judit Polgar’s column
The Queen of Chess has always felt attracted to the King’s Gambit.

'What would Mark think?'
Jacob Aagaard remembers Mark Dvoretsky, a great trainer, a brilliant author and a dear friend. A highly personal tribute.

Top Notch Review by wstaylor
I was fortunate enough to be one of the yearly subscription winners from 2012, which introduced me to this excellently crafted, wonderful chess magazine. I could not believe the fantastic reporting and lovely photography that is utilized by the publisher.

For this top notch magazine, the price is more than reasonable. Highly recommended. (Posted on July 3, 2014)

New in Chess? How about Great in Chess!? Review by SemiBluff
All top events are covered in the best chess magazine in the world.

Secrets of Opening Surprises is a nice touch in this publication, which will give you a new trick up your sleeve for your next chess club meeting.

Overall, like I said, this magazine is simply the best.
