Most of your questions have been plagiarized from Tim Hanke's soon to be
released Chess Trivia Game.

I have been thinking of putting Hanke into my chess quiz as follows:

Hanke is:

1. The son of a Nazi War Criminal who escaped to Paraguay
2. The man who ran for USCF Executive Board so that he could force the
USCF to sell his chess trivia game.
3. A great place to blow your nose
4. A person who wants to expel scholastic chess players from the USCF
5. The Dirty Vicar


It would have to be 2 or 3. As 5 is Frank Niro.

Here's a more genuine chess quiz question (sorry to put a wet blanket on
your attempts at humor, Sam):

Is there such a thing as a SYMMETRIC position in which, no matter whose move
it is, the player on the move loses, with best play by his opponent?

SYMMETRIC means that, for example, if white has a knight on e3, then black
has a knight on e6.
