Removed Edit

I removed the following text:

Yet the total number of possible chess games is described by the Shannon number, which is approximately 10120, or a billion billion googol, which makes chess a game with more variations than the total number of atoms in the universe.

I'm not sure a) what it was supposed to refer to in the article, and b) what real relevance it has to the article. -- Renegade54 18:50, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

It was originally in reference to the Tuvok's comment that Chess was simple in comparison to Kal-toh, but someone added another reference in between. But the note was irrelevant anyway, as you said. – Cleanse 04:44, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


Removed part 2 Edit

  • Whether or not this indicates an Organian partiality to the game remains unknown.
  • Note that this chess nomenclature (English Descriptive Notation) is uncommon in the 21st century, it being much more common to use algebraic notation to describe chess games. As for the moves themselves, the description could be claimed to show evidence of the hypermodern chess school surviving into at least the 24th century.

First one we don't bother with, second realworld comparison. — Morder (talk) 05:09, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
