Barden ends his streak

Leonard Barden has ended his world record streak of daily chess columns, announcing his retirement from his London Evening Standard column a few days ago. His streak of producing a column every day for over 63 years was not only a record for chess journalists, but is believed to be a world record for any type of journalist. To commemorate his retirement, I have found a game between Barden, and another legendary figure in English chess journalism, B.H. Wood.
