    All,

    Classic chess duel in the new Game of Shadows movie.  The best part of the movie for sure as chaos swirls around them, they don't even move the pieces on the board speaking them aloud for several turns. 

    Does anyone know if it was from a classic game? 

     

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Haven't seen the movie yet. Can you give us the notation? Was it the same as the game listed here?

    When I do get to see the movie, I'll definitely keep an eye out for the scene.
