Word from the editor (Tiger Forest) : Here is the latest copy of chess
report and post monthly for you to enjoy.
The full rich text version can be found on the website as usual for those
readers that are interested. I have posted the reduced rich
text version but it may not appear in the group straight away (28.0kb). To
keep the size small the rich text has been reduced greatly.


This month's question : - "How long will it take to solve chess?"

"I would suggest with the introduction of quantum computing and broadband
that we must be exponentially approaching the point at which this discussion

Answer at the bottom of this e-mail.

Here are some interesting facts:- " Things you didn't know you didn't know
and probably
now know you didn't want to know what you didn't know"

The average chess player of average age uses less of his brain when playing
chess compared
to the average grandmaster.

The longest problem for finding checkmate was mate in 270 moves (composed by
petrovici in 1969)

Hikaru Nakamura was a chess master at the age of just 10 years and 2
months - a record.

The average chess player gets 5 erections during a 3 hour chess match.

After just 3 moves by each side there are of the order of approx 4 million
different possible games.

This months poser

White: Kf5, Rd5, Bf6, h5, h6. Black: Ke8, Rh8, g5.)

White to move and mate in 2. No computers allowed - naughty naughty!

Well thanks to all those who contributed to this month's newsletter. Please
post your solutions to the group.
The first with the correct answer wins a jam donut. It will be in the post

Answer to joke : one to come up with the idea and 20 to analyse it.(source
