Checkmate, Huck Finn

As this article notes, Don DeLillo once said that all plots end in death. So do chess matches. So, naturally we (rather, the authors) ask: what famous plots would beat other famous plots in a chess match?

The algorithm was a little beyond our understanding – or, more precisely, our desire to understand. But we were somewhat mesmerized, and disheartened, while watching “Huckleberry Finn” lose to “Little Women.”

Play your own simulations, here.
