Obviously, if an arbiter had been called to the board after 3. g7+, there could have been only one possible answer, even before the Thurlow amendment to the Laws.JustinHorton wrote: ↑Fri Jun 05, 2020 6:44 amYeah, but it's possible that the months question is a poor comparison. We know all the months have at least 28 days, and that when one asks "which month has 28 days" they are either seeking the answer "February" or asking a trick question. We also know that nobody intended to frame the Laws of Chess such that we could escape check by moving into three simultaneous checks, because it would be ludicrously silly.
Nevertheless, I agree with Rewan that it is a lovely gem. That was not the view of the young Polgar sisters.
The study does seem to polarise opinion a lot. Some are amused and impressed, others just think it stupid.
Anyway, welcome to the Forum, Rewan
