Question 3
From where are these lines taken?

A: Do you ever feel like a chess piece yourself? In a game being played against your will. 
B: Do you? 
A: Constantly. I see them leaning in and moving me around the board. I'm sure half the politicians are ready to seize hold of my skirts and drag me from square to square. 
B: Then you had better master the rules of the game until you play it better than they can. 
A: You don't recommend I find a husband to play it for me? 
B: I should find one to play it with you, not for you.

Question 4 
Which Grandmaster lost his game in the eighth round of a 
premier chess tournament this week because of the time control rule?

Question 5
