The number of names of pieces on the chess boards in the world’s chess tournaments has topped one million, thanks in part to the popularity of online services such as Chess.com.
A new study by researchers at the University of Cambridge and University of Wisconsin-Madison suggests that online chess services such the popular website chess.com and other sites such as Wikipedia have contributed to the increase in the number of chess-related names.
“We know that there are people who play chess in the wild, and so we know that it is very easy for them to get these kinds of names,” said lead author Dr. Mark Jansson.
“So if there’s some other website that is selling this sort of a game, that’s going to attract people to it.”
The researchers analysed 1,063 chess pieces from the world championships, the world championship in Paris and the U.S. Open and determined how many names they contained.
The research was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
“If there are lots of pieces in one place, there’s going the risk of that piece being mistaken for another piece,” Jansson said.
“But it also gives you an idea of where the players are and where the pieces are.”
The study showed that the number on the board had been increasing since the late 1990s.
The researchers looked at a dataset of the world chess championships from 1995 to 2017.
The data is drawn from the official website of the U,S.
Chess Federation, which provides official statistics on the quality of the tournament.
The dataset includes all players in the top 30, and the top 25 in the U-17, U-18 and U-19 world championships.
Jansson said the researchers were able to identify the names of the pieces because they matched the type of piece they were.
For example, a rook is a short piece with an average height of 6.5 cm.
A pawn is a long piece with a long average height.
“You could say that the average chess piece has an average length of 1.8 cm,” Janson said.
“The average chess pawn has an expected length of 3.8cm.
So we could say there are a lot of pawns in the dataset.”
The analysis also revealed that there were an average of 2,300 pieces per piece.
“That’s a lot, because you would expect the number to be more like 2,500,” Jagger said.
It is not just the number, but also the number that was changing, Jansson added.
“It turns out that the actual number of pieces has actually increased significantly.”
The increase in chess-playing names was a result of chess programs like Chess.
Com, which have helped players find and identify their pieces.
“People like playing chess on a computer, so they get lots of chess books,” Jäng said.
When people are looking for chess pieces, the chess program Chess.net comes up.
Net lets users download chess pieces on a PC, and players can look them up on the site.
But the popularity and accessibility of chess software has increased dramatically in the past five years, Jägansson said, adding that the increased popularity of chess online has contributed to increased names of various pieces.
