On October 11 a well-known chess column which has been running since 1962 finished with an ominous sentence: "This is the final chess column to run in The New York Times.” The end of an era, brought on by the dominance of chess in the web? Not so fast, says Matt Gaffney in a thoughtful Slate Magazine article. He names two candidates who could take over the NYT chess column.

Synopsis: 10/20/2014 – We recently published a piece on the termination of the New York Times chess column (after more than fifty years). A Slate article seemed to celebrate the event and the chance to replace the most recent columnist, Dylan Loeb McClain, with a more interesting writer. McClain thinks that Slate "got it almost completely wrong" and explains to us exactly how the NYT column worked.

This is a refreshing look at the article; Thanks for sharing Steve.R.
