User: At the start of a game of chess, each player has a choice of how many moves?

Weegy: Each player chooses one of 20 first moves available (16 pawn moves; 4 knight moves). There are 400 different positions possible after each player makes one move apiece. There are 72,084 positions possible after two moves apiece. There are 9+ million positions possible after three moves apiece. There are 288+ billion different possible positions possible after four moves apiece. http://www.AnswerBag.com/q_view/439478 There are more 40-move games possible than the number of electrons in our universe. There are more game-trees of chess than the number of galaxies (100+ billion), and more openings, defences, gambits, etc. than the number of quarks in our universe! http://www.Chess-Poster.com/english/notes_and_facts/did_you_know.htm There are 318,979,564,000 possible ways to play the first four moves of chess. In addition, America's Foundation for Chess found that there are 169,518,829,100,544,000 x10¹² ways to play the first ten moves of a game of chess. http://EzineArticles.com/?Secret-of-Chess&id=1717732 The Shannon number, 10 to the 120 power (10¹²º), is an estimated lower bound on the game-tree complexity of chess. As a comparison, the number of atoms in the observable Universe, to which it is often compared, is estimated to be between 4 × 10 to the 79 power and 10 to the 81 power. http://en.Wikipedia.org/wiki/Shannon_number
