Zimmermann – Walther
Black to play after 22 Kxf4
Richard Forster, The Zurich Chess Club, 1809-2009 (McFarland 2011), pp.201-2.
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
a new kind of whiteness I never thought possible with my old Chess Magazine – and without boiling
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
an entertaining, irreverent chess magazine that takes you over to the lighter side with verve and panache
a must-read for everyone who doesn’t take chess too seriously; it’s especially a must-read for everyone who does take chess seriously
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
