two things are jumping out at me here, for one I think the players are not taking the whole tournament so seriously as to worry about fairness.



I said right off the bat I'm chess board fodder. Ask Minnesotajoe whether I was serious about it. I think at one point I might have threatened one of his pawns, then again I might have gotten the wrong impression. For sure I never threatened anything worth threatening. So take it seriously? Me? Well, yes, if by serious you mean showing up for an appointed match and doing the best I know how.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Here's my guess:
(1) Some sorta-random, near-the-center, white pawn moves two spaces forward.
(2) A bunch of other moves.
(3) Checkmate!

Or were you perhaps looking for details?
