Jul-09-13  erniecohen: My favorite part of the story is that during the hour Pachman spent pretending to be thinking about his next move (move 28), he recited to himself logarithms that he had memorized. Not exactly the activity most of us would choose.
Jul-29-13  Monoceros: <Not exactly the activity most of us would choose.>

Certainly not! I've only memorized three (log 2, log 3 and ln 2, each to only three digits) and such an activity would not have kept me busy for long.
