#2 The Archaic One about the Chess Grandmaster Harry and How He Lost his Bread
Many chess grandmasters in the 19th century used to make money off playing chess in coffeehouses and local bars. The rules were tad simple; the opponent would place their wager and they would get it back if they drew or won.
Harry was one such grandmaster and he used to get better of a regular, a poor guy called Tobby from down the village. Harry almost felt guilty for taking the poor chap’s money every night but he had to put a roof over his head and eat; and this guy was his buttered side of the bread. Really! One day, a daily drinking partner and close buddy at their favorite village joint asked him.
“What will you do when Tobby realizes that he’ll never beat you and walks away? You almost live off the poor fellow. How will you be making money then?”
Harry thought about it for a while and decided that maybe it was true and the poor guy would probably need some encouragement to keep him coming back. He was going to save his goose that laid him the golden eggs he boasted of while they drank more beer having a wonderful time. As always, Tobby was on time and he placed his wager again, as always.
When the game started, Harry got the idea to throw the game and let the guy win, just for this once. He thought it would be a good joke to share with his drinking buddies when they talked about it later. Now, truth be told, this poor guy was also very poor at chess and Harry was short of just laying his King down and walking away because he had done everything to let the guy win but in vain. At last and just by a stroke of luck the poor guy beat Harry. He leaped up in the air shouting.
“I’m the champion of the world!” all the way home.
And that’s how Harry found himself living in the streets!
So, if you want to avoid this situation learn playing chess.

So, Mr. Chess Grandmaster goes, “Now you see… this is not a good combination for a code if you wanted a number someone would never forget. Probably rounding it off to the nearest 5 or 10 would have been ok. There’s no way I’m going to remember that!”
The wife looked at him with shock mixed with confusion writ all over her face and almost yelled her top off as she walked away exclaiming… “That’s the 16th of August and it’s our anniversary!”

“Oh yeah? What’s your move then?” she asks, almost inviting him to sit down.
He had not really thought that far so he decided to wing it.
“I’m so deadly that all my friends don’t dare play with me. They keep complaining about me not understanding the rules but I think it’s because I’m the best. I roll double sixes nearly 7 times out of 10!” he replied, feeling good that his pick up line was going to work this time too.
She woke up and walked away!
