Chess Knight Might

Don’t move the horse!


A famous chess master was in the habit of taking his 5-year old son to matches in the hope of instilling a love of the game in the boy. At a tense moment in a championship game, the master reached out to move on of his knights.

“Don’t move the horse,” the boy said. His father looked at him, thought it over, then decided to make a different move. As a result, he won the game.

Later, he wondered if his son had some kind of intuitive genius for the game of chess. So he asked the boy, “Why did you tell me not to move the horse?”

“He looked tired,” the boy said.
