## Can Chess Be Solved? [Hint: Probably Not!]

In theory, chess can be solved because the rules create a closed, predictable system. In practice, however, chess cannot be solved because it’s beyond the capacity of any human mathematicians and beyond the capabilities of computers. There are 10120 potential variations of games in chess and around 1043 different potential positions on the board. To fully solve chess, every single one of these must be compared against the other.
