Chess in super hero comic books and how often they get it wrong.


The chess starts around about two and half minutes in.

A piece about the difference between the Grimshaw and the Novotny.

The Hall of Doom with some cracking examples.

How does White suceed in losing this?

That was Monkfish Man talking to Worm Eating Woman.

He does say she once beat Batman (The Insomniac )

Here are a couple of my favorite chess games in film.

The Seventh Seal (1957) >>>

The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) >>> [

Twin Peaks ~ I can't find a clip on Youtube, but they refer to "P" file to move a piece when there is no "P" in the coordinance of chess. But in their defense there is an explanation later in the series.

Nice to see chess problem themes in the last 2 blogs, GP.

The K. Stancil combination was spectacular! He must have been so proud of that game. I know I would be. Every chess friend I ever made, anywhere, would have to see that game. 🙂

I have one correction on the Loyd problem:


1.Qd6 Rg7 and the mate is not 2.Qd8+? as given, but rather 2.Qxe5+. Your move is blocked by 2...Re7.

Thanks Big Dog. Corrected.

That's what I get for messing about with Sam Loyd.

The 'what piece was taken on b6' puzzle in the latest blog.

wrong with this then you will find it......and let a villain get away.

That one looked solid to me. Of course, using stipulations such as "White gave odds of QR" makes the composer's task easier. But for books like Smullyan's Chess Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes, those worked well as introductions to the genre. (Also, when you're composing 30 or so different problems for one book, it's OK to make the task easier.)
