    Bishop or knight? "Depends if you're religious." Sounds pretty smug and smartaas

    I think he actually liked that question. The other questions were too professional for his taste. :D

    Why does horsey one move so crazy? Why not straight moves like castle head? Lol I'm dying

  • Artem The GOAT

     (Apr 7, 2019)

    Nobody knows why the horsey moves so much but I've actually made lots of checkmates using the horseys

    I can answer the 'middle-finger' question. You move your piece with thumb and pointy finger ... at all times, accessible while lingering over the board. The next in line is the middle finger - he's 'free' to use.

  • Kupferhans

     (4 days ago)

    The middle finger is also so longest finger. So two pluses!

  • Muneeb I

     (Feb 17, 2019)

    Adam Beckett great answer .. also pointing with the ring finger or the pinky is pretty hard. So, middle finger is the only option :)

  • Alex Manole

    Kasparov seems like such a nice guy.

    you should at least learn the rules, it can be fun to play occasionally and it makes you seem smarter
