Love and a chess match

AS THIS ISSUE into production, chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov is preparing for a match with "Deep Junior," a leading computer chess program. And, in the words of singer Tina Turner, you're rightly wondering, "What's love got to do with it?" That's a fair question.

A recent New York Times story on the Kasparov Deep Junior match explained that in any chess game there are 85 billion ways of playing just the first four moves for each side. While even such an astronomical number is nowhere near infinity, that's a lot possibilities. For many people, making the right moves in romance and relationships can seem just as complicated with options, and as hope-deficient as my chances of making a good gambit against Mr. Kasparov.
