Hi, I love your site.
I was wondering if you could tell me where you got the information for fact #14 on your facts page?
You stated that: “The number of possible ways of playing the first
four moves per side in a game of Chess is 318,979,564,000.”
Where did you get that information from?
I would like to contact your source if that is possible?
Please help me if you can.
It has been a long time since we posted this Chess fact and we may not have or recall the link source.
There is an interesting article about Chess including the question you are interested in at the following link:
Hope this may be useful to you.
