The Quickest Way to Win at Chess
The game of chase is an ancient and subtle game, filled with strategy and nuance. There are many schools of thought on the quickest way to win at chess. The key of course is to produce a checkmate, in which no possible move by the opponent can prevent the taking of the opponent's king. Interestingly, the shortest possible checkmate has been computed: it is called the "Fool's Mate". The white player moves the pawn in front of the Bishop forward one space. The black side moves the pawn in front of the king one space. The white side then moves the pawn in front of the night 2 spaces, and then black moves their queen to the board's edge. White is now checkmated. This is unlikely to actually occur, of course.
