Wacky Wednesday - Fun Vocabulary

Here are five words that should be part of chess vocabulary, but aren't at the moment:

1. The 'pork' - a tactic involving both a pin and a fork

2. The 'nopening' - an uncommon move order at the start of the game that either makes no sense or should be avoided

3. The 'shussle' - quick movement/shuffling of a person's body or chair to avoid a distraction (such as an intrusive spectator)

4. The 'COMET' - a completely obvious move everyone tries in a certain situation

5. The 'primate' - the best way to end the game
