The Week in Chess is 20 years old today. The first issue of the magazine was published on Saturday 17th September 1994. In the full article below I give an update from the 1000th issue earlier in the year. I list all 1036 issues so far along with their text and with a donation button to get all the games in ChessBase format. I feel a great sense of achievement in reaching this landmark. I hope that in some small way I've helped players all over the world keep in touch with chess and have access to almost every top class game over that time no matter how rich or poor they are. Now I have to look to the future. I plan to be around a long while. I have some obvious additions I can make to the website that only require some programming but also my personal financial stability has to come to the fore now. Read more ....
