Longest Running Chess Column

The Guardian's Leonard Barden is set to break a record. According to Stephen Moss, who writes for the same paper, Barden, British chess champion in 1954, will next week set the "new all-time record for the longest-running continuous chess column". One thing to also note is that Barden once defeated the great Bobby Fischer!

Garry Koshnitsky wrote the Sun-Herald chess column from 1935 until 1994, so Barden has a long way to go.
