At least Will Robinson had "a Model B-9, Class M-3 General Utility Non-Theorizing Environmental Control Robot" to save the day when Dr. Zachary Smith performed his deeds of sabotage.
After several days of consideration, Greg offers a trade of Queens, which if accepted, would let his Rook on f1 evade capture.
Can the young champions from Stevenson find a way to follow through on the skewer and win the Exchange?
Can White's rook, now entombed on f1, be saved from the bishop on a6? The kids will have their choices by Monday night and then it will be up to YOU to decide.
Greg Chamitoff vs. Earth (after 11.Qe1)
