    50 Moves Magazine

    There is so much happening in Australian chess right now, and the future is also looking bright with Australia ready to send itís youngest-ever team to an Olympiad, in Tromso next month. For the first time since the 1980s, Australia's top players are travelling overseas regularly to compete; so much so that it is hard to keep track of them all!

    50 Moves Magazine is launching this month to provide a definitive guide on everything happening in and around Australian chess.

    The first issue is a bumper Olympiad special and will be released on August 1. We chat to Justin Tan from his new home in England, where he narrowly missed his first Grandmaster norm. We relay the thoughts of Olympic team members David Smerdon, Giang Nguyen and Captain Manuel Weeks on the upcoming Olympiad. Ian Rogers covers the tactical moments which decided the World Rapid and Blitz Championships in Dubai, Max Illingworth gives us the rundown on the Ragozin Variation, and thereís much, much more.

    For information, check out our website www.50movesmagazine.com, and donít forget to like us on Facebook (50 Moves Magazine) and follow us on Twitter @50movesmagazine! Subscribe today!

    I hope this comes off, Australian chess could do with a publication like this as I've said on my blog.
    I've never been so broke that I couldn't leave town

    Thanks for all the support, we hope everyone will get behind the magazine.

    Stokesy, there'll be not one but two of Brodie's games in the first issue!

    Done, I subscribed for a year! Still cannot locate my visa card (I better do before I travel OS) so I used one of my other CBA cards. All my details in the email I sent! E.R.

    oh my goodness I just went through Chris's Endgame column (first part - Knight Pawn)

    What a great way to start his contributions to the magazine.

    Crystal clear, logical, thorough presentation and analysis. I look forward to read the rest of the article as well as samples from other contributors.

    Thanks Fedge and 50 Moves.

    Looks like you are doing the right thing at the right time!



    (Can't wait for August 1, I will be reading the complete first issue in the plane on the way to Europe!

    Cheers and good luck!

    It looks good, but a couple of minor points. I think Smerf may be our 5th GM (not 4th) assuming Zhao was a GM first. Also it is confusing having diagrams with Black moving up the board, particularly when squares are not numbered.

    Interesting. Any plans to accept payment it Bitcoins as well as whatever other options are there? Or is that too obscure for what's generally a fairly obscure topic in Australia anyway?
