The Australian Newspaper

The last few weeks, I've been pleasantly surprised by the Australian newspaper. It is now carrying a section on Chess once every week in its Mind Games section.

The Chess section is taken from The UK Times newspaper and written by Raymond Keene (hehe, you can seem doing the crosswords in red ink on the right). :)

The last few weeks have been about Robert Fischer. This week's game's analysis centered around the game between Leonid Stein and Bobby Fischer in their Swiss Interzonal of 1967.

The analysis is unfortunately not too in-depth as can be seen from the image above and has been very much condensed. However, in a chess-starved country like Australia, I applaud the Australian for bringing chess back into the news. I've blacked out some of the remaining moves so that if you want to know what they are, I advise that you get a copy of the Australian! ;-)
