Play Smarter Opponents

So I'm back from Tokyo. The Qantas pilot lied. He said it'd be a nice 24 degrees celsius today in Sydney. It's actually 41 degrees! Here I am, then, stuck indoors - but not before a quick trip to the video rental store to grab a couple of DVDs. If I'm going to be inside all day, I might as well have some movies.

And it's there that I spot something that I hadn't seen before. Guy Ritchie's 2005 movie, Revolver. The film features chess.

Quote: "Rule one of any game or con: you can only get smarter by playing a smarter opponent." And here, director Guy Ritchie explains how the scene was made.
