About Us


50 Moves Magazine was established in 2014 to provide an outlet where Australian chess players of all ages could share their knowledge and unique experiences.  In doing so, helping to popularise the game we love. As well as inspire, entertain and educate the next generation of Australian players. For us, chess is our greatest passion and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Our magazine is currently available for Print and Digital Web (PDF+PGN) formats. Full of high-quality educational material about all aspects of chess, suitable for players of all levels. We have various articles on opening, middlegame and endgame strategies, interviews with local and international players, chess psychology, history and news about Australian chess from a team of passionate and dedicated Australian writers. 

We hope to share everything we have learnt from many years of playing/coaching and take Australian chess to a whole new level.

Happy Learning.
