Easy to use, powerful, and versatile, the Guardian OLP is the perfect fit for any company who wants to put quality and customer satisfaction first.

      February’s InfoBYTE

      Each month we present a new bit of trivia that we call an InfoByte. You can check out previous InfoBytes in our newsletter archive.

      This month’s InfoByte contains a few items about this history of chess.

      The word "Checkmate" in chess comes from the Persian phrase "Shah Mat," or "the king is helpless.”

      The highest number of moves in a tournament game is 269. It was played in 1989 between Nikolic-Arsovic and lasted 20 hours and 15 minutes. It ended in a draw.

      Chess originated from the two-player Indian war game, Chatarung, which dates back to 600 A.D.

      American chess was fortuitously trumpeted by founding father and chess aficionado Benjamin Franklin, who in 1750 penned "The Morals of Chess,” which can be found here.

      The queen was not always the most powerful piece on the board. In one of the original Persian versions of the game, the piece that was next to the king was the king’s advisor, or Firzan. This piece could only move one square diagonally. It wasn’t until the 15th century that she became the queen as we know it today.
