|By Hal Bogner, Match Director|
|May 2, 2009|
Dr. Greg Chamitoff - having "lifted" a rook to the 3rd rank five moves ago - is now repositioning it to continue to try to make trouble for Earth's defenders.
The young champions of Stevenson Elementary School have prepared two choices, and either way, Earth's side will go ahead by two pawns.
But both choices will involve being caught in a pin. You can now vote on the world's 24th move - please vote by Sunday night at midnight EDT (9 PM PDT).
And while you're pondering your choices, check out the latest article about the Stevenson team, in last Saturday's Seattle Times!
