    I'm going to assume this is a thread to ask 'What If' questions. I love books about historical what ifs, but I'll stick to Chess here.

    What if a player with Fisher-like abilities arrives at RHP, but because of their circumstances, can only play online? They quickly run over all opposition, but just as quickly are banned as an engine user.

    This is not my original idea. I read it some newspaper column, but can't remember where?

    He would be accused of being an engine-user but I doubt
    very much if any of his games would hint at engine use!!!

    What if pi was a simple straightforward whole number without the endless recurring whatnot?

    I'm thinking more about what his occupation would have been
    I think he would just have gone insane and no one would have even cared

    What if everyone was entirely ambidextrous [and I'm not referring to the "equally skillful with each hand" meaning of the word]?

    I'm going by the thread title.

    You should think about starting a blog, Grampy Bobby, then you could micromanage absolutely everything and everyone .🙂

    What if Bobby Fisher had been from a smaller country? Would his story have been as widely known?

    Few if any thoughtful contributors to this online general forum give a damn about
    gratuitous pontifications about off topic historical trivia. We're done here.

    Loads of people don't give a damn about what loads of other people say, and sometimes they do. And yet we get by. Start a blog, Grampy Bobby, and then you can ensure that absolutely everything stems from your endorsement and approval. 😀
