Who invented checkers?
Who started chess?
The answer, as they say, is a lot of research.
The answer was the 18th century Englishman John Bledsoe, who developed the game of chess in the 1600s, and was a pioneer of checkers as a means of winning.
It wasn’t until the early 20th century that chess became a serious international sport, thanks to World War II and the birth of professional players in the early 1980s.
The game is played on a board that is about the size of a tennis court and is played in several different styles.
The first chess match was played on the board in the United States in 1889, and the first game of checkerboard chess was played in England in 1893.
But it was the invention of the world’s first black player, the British chess grandmaster Nigel Short, that put the game on the map.
The Englishman had spent the previous year in France studying the art of chess.
He was studying the French version of the game, where each move was to be calculated from the position of a rook and queen, then it was a matter of finding a way to maximize the chances of victory.
Chess was invented by a black player in England, and Nigel Short had spent two years in France.
In 1891, he won the title of world’s most successful chess player, beating the Italian playmaker, Ivan Kramnik.
It was during this period that the British computer program Deep Blue defeated world champion Garry Kasparov, who had won seven grandmasters titles by the time he was 40.
By 1892, Short was leading the world in terms of winning grandmaster titles.
In 1893, he had also defeated a French champion, Jean-Michel Ribery, and, in 1896, a German champion.
By the time Short won his first international championship, in June of that year, he was one of the top players in Europe.
He had won his second and third tournaments of 1893, and in the spring of 1896, he beat the great Russian playmaker Ivan Kramsnik, but then a stroke of luck led to the first world championship match ever played in a chessboard.
The winner of that match, the French chess grandmasters, was the young American player, William Henry Williams.
Williams won the match with a perfect record of wins against all the top chess players in America, including Kasparot, and later the world championship title in 1896.
In 1900, the world chess champion, the American Magnus Carlsen, won the first grandmaster title against the French champion and in 1901, the first European championship match was held.
In 1905, the two American grandmasters faced each other and the Americans won with a draw, so the next tournament would be held in New York.
The tournament was held in the same hotel, and when the Americans left the hotel in a hurry, Carlsen got the better of Williams and beat him in the first set.
In the first match of the next year, Williams and Carlsen met again in a final to determine the winner of the first American chess championship match.
In 1911, the tournament was hosted in the American town of San Francisco.
Carlsen won the game 4-2, and by the end of the tournament he had beaten Williams.
In 1912, the famous American chess grand master, Carl von Ossietzky, won a major championship against the American playmaker Anatoly Karpov.
The match between Williams and Karpotnik in 1924 became the first chess game to be broadcast on television.
Carlsson, who won the American chess title in 1923, had just turned 36 years old, but he had already won the world title five times.
He won a fourth and fifth time, but in 1924, his record of winning a major title was eclipsed by Williams’ by a score of 4-3.
In 1926, Carlsson defeated Karpovich, but the world champion, Carl Espenak, had beaten him by a stroke.
In 1928, Williams, then 37, beat Karpnik and had a 3-1 advantage, and that was the beginning of a dynasty of world champions.
The American chess world champion in 1927 was the American Eugenie Bouchard, who was born on January 23, 1919, in New Haven, Connecticut.
She was the first woman to win the world top prize, and she won it with a record of 16 wins and a draw.
In 1933, Bouchards brother, the Canadian chess player Bobby Fischer, won his fourth world title in a row with a score 8-0.
In 1936, Fischer beat the Italian grandmaster, Bobby Fischer and beat Boucharons two world titles.
Then in 1941, Fischer defeated the American grandmaster Fritz Houdini, who later became the world number one.
By 1944, Boursin had won a total of
