Now why didn’t I think of that? Have two chess masters play against each other, but tell them both that the other is a noob!

Interesting … Taking with the King was his mistake IMHO.. But taking with the knight might have blown his cover ….

The biggest mistake was allowing themselves to be suckered in!!

Way back when computers were still communicating via dot matrix printer (not even a screen), a local college was having an open house highlighting their computer science program with a chess program they created.

Trouble was, they had so many bugs in the code that the program wasn't ready by time of the open house. So they found best chess player in the college, and put them on other end of remote terminal. The "computer" that people played was another human...lucky he was good and nobody beat him.

They essentially acted noobish but played strong moves. They just couldn't bring themselves to play poorly..

They were forced to compromise.

It reminds me a bit of two pool hustlers trying to hustle each other, both pretending to be part-timers.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
