Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5!  Please copy these questions to your webspace.  Answer them there; then leave a comment below, so we’ll all know where to check out your responses.  Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

On this date in 1996, IBM’s Deep Blue supercomputer beat Garry Kasparov in a game of chess for the first time.  This week’s questions are in honor of that amazing feat.

  1. When and how did you learn to play chess?
  2. How is your chess game?
  3. When did you last find yourself in a stalemate?
  4. A gambit is a chess opening in which a player sacrifices a piece in hopes of gaining an advantageous position.  What was one of your recent, real-world gambits?
  5. Which piece on the chessboard is most like you, and why?

Thanks for participating, and may blessings rain down a pawn your weekend!
