   We've been over this before.  Your observation is correct: there is
not enough storage to solve chess, even if there were enough CPU to find
the solution, which there isnt.


   Our only option is to find solutions of sub-problems.  The 7 and 8
piece endgame problems are probably solvable, as is playing a single
game.
