ChessProbability puzzles require you to weigh all the possibilities and pick the most likely outcome.
X was starring in the Super Chess Challenge. He played 8 people at once! What are the odds of X being victorious every game? It is assumed that everyone is on the same playing level.
In a chess game, one can win, lose, draw, stalemate, resign, or opponent resigns. That is a total of 6 possibilities for one game! Odds of winning one game are 1 in 6. Odds of winning all 8 games are (1/6)^8. So,
(1/6)^8=.000000595, or .0000595% !
