How can chess imitate Tetris? When your pieces are cobbled together, you can sometimes form Tetris shapes, and today you'll see two of them. Anatoly Karpov gets the "box" of 4 pieces (inflexible in Tetris but powerful in chess), while our video author, Gregory Kaidanov, get the "Z-shaped" collection of pieces.
