    I do trust some of them, but think about it. A chessboard is 64 squares. If you think about it, there are 16 chesspeices, 8 of them are only capable of moving forward 2 spaces then 1 from that point on, the rest can only move diagonally, or straight foward with the exception of two that can move both ways. There are infact billions of grains of sand on the world, and a limit to the ammount of moves on a chessboard. Also some people are able to memorize movements on a game of chess, knowing how their opponent will react and how they should move after that, the human brain would be incapable of remembering billions of chess movements.
