Chess is a stupid analogy considering both opponents start with exactly the same level of quality and potential in their pieces.
Well, in that case, all board games are a stupid analogy because that describes them all... and I don't disagree with you except that great Chess players (and I'm talking the best in the world) don't tend to be idiots. Bobby Fischer may have been crazy but his IQ was said to be 160. That is Stephen Hawking level smart.

I had a Numerical Analysis professor at UT that played 3 level chess. Can't remember his name.. Fun guy but, a little cooky.
I wonder if we had the same guy. He had a beard, walked with kind of a limp and always wore a tweed jacket with jeans. He would even use his own made up variables. His favorite was a squiggly looking made-up symbol and he called it "Ca-See". lol

The image of Stephen Hawking rolling downfield in a wheelchair just doesn't sit well in my mind.

Yeah we need smart, but with Bruce Willis toughness.

Forget Fischer. He wouldn't even show up to play. Ok he'd show up for one game, beat the s*** out of you, then disappear for the rest of his life.

That's him. Just looked him up and he's still there. "Frankel"
