Re: 96 moves in the two knights endgame[edit]

Yes i knew that pawn reset this 50 rules, but in Nalimov table last move pawn is e2 to e1 and win in 74 move:) and the next pawn move is in win in 4, also the 50 move rules is break. Check it. Instruktorek (talk) 16:26, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

OK. Usually in theoretical endgames they don't count the fifty move rule. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 17:11, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Help with name of book[edit]

I remember reading about 15 years ago. From what I can remember of it, the story was about this guy who comes across a chess set then when used in a game & if the other player loses then that person will die. In the end of the story the guy with the chess set plays a chess game with someone that he expects to lose but he loses himself. Any ideas ? Scotius (talk) 12:33, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

It does not sound familiar to me at all. You could try asking at Wikipedia:Reference desk/Humanities - someone there will probably know. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 18:53, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Well, someone there suggested coming here to ask you (Wikipedia:Reference desk/Humanities - Help with name of book) Scotius (talk) 13:31, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
