The first five all-correct entries win a free copy of chess magazine Black & White with a complete tutorial on Chess King. Post your answers here or just email them to Last Date: April 8, 2012.

Sorry folks, Mr Google won't be able to help you much tonight.

Which is the Queen of Chess Openings?

Question 2
