Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for January 06, 2006
"Nate, you're a very good chess player. One of the best I've had during all my years as the Chess Team advisor." "Then why can't I beat Artur?" "Because Artur is a bonafide prodigy, Nate! He's almost unbeatable!" "Ah-HA! 'Almost' unbeatable! So I can beat him!" "Well, I suppose there's always a statistical probability, but..." "Yes! Right there! It IS possible!!" "Suddenly, this conversation has veered off course." "ARTUR! RE-MATCH!"
