|Taking No Chances|

Half the chess club from Stevenson Elementary School wanted to play 15 ... e6. The other half wanted to play 15 ... f6. Earth chose 15 ... e6. And Astronaut Greg Chamitoff chose 16. a3 in response.
This time, the kids took no chances and only made ONE recommendation in response: 16 ... f6! These kids are persistent, if nothing else! Thus, there will be no voting on Earth's 16th move as the kids have spoken!
The ball is once again in Greg's court, and we eagerly await his response.
