Can you count all the moves that can be made in the first two moves? I, John Werkheiser, think I did. On the first white move twenty moves can be made. On the first black move 400 total positions are available.  On the second white move a whopping total of 32,800 positions are available. For the second black move, regardless of position, I found 11,545,600 positions! Can you count them all? (20.20.(55_82).(55_352). 20-400-32800-11545600

I missed 4 moves and counted some multiple times when I, John Werkheiser made this publish. I now count 1,392,697 positions by blacks second move! I challenge any one who reads this to try and find more or as many possible positions in the first two moves. 20.20.(59_86).(59_356). 20-400-23627-1392697
