Amateur Chess Championship 1987 Edit
While looking at the list of chess players from 1987, I noticed the name “I. Varley” on the list. Could this be a relative to Bryce? Also note a “G. Martyn” on the list, which fits the “Martin Goathead” name Bryce is telling Nicole about in "Better Angels". —ff 09:59, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
Sacrifice move Edit
Can someone, who doesn't suck as bad in chess as I do, please explain why this move is a queen sacrifice? I fail to see the danger for the white queen … —ff 10:08, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
- I'd call that a blooper. Frede 19:30, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah, Queen is free to go wherever it need next turn. Black queen can be sacrificed in multiple ways now, but I don't see how it may help --Глючарина 19:34, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Ouch. I'd at least state my credentials before declaring a move by an alleged genius (albeit fictional one) a blooper. I'd assume the writers would do their homework on this one, knowing there are those of us scrutinizing every frame of the show. Then again, I don't play chess, and if I did, would probably only think one or two moves in advance, and even then probably overlook some obvious ones. - Bryan 21:59, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
- Years ago, I called myself passable at chess. I see no sacrifice.--Jim in Georgia Contribs Talk 22:41, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
- This move is obviously not a sacrifice - Queen isn't under attack now and has plenty of ways to escape any possible further attacks. And it supposed to be this exact move to be sacrifice. Definitely a blooper --Глючарина 20:01, April 10, 2010 (UTC)
