Storyline

Kluge decides to revive the inter-island chess tournament as a morale-boosting P.R. exercise despite misgivings by Richter and Dr. Martel that a German victory would cause resentment among the islanders. When Reinicke uses dirty tricks to force the local chess master Arthur Gardner to withdraw from the final against former champion Muller to ensure a German propaganda win, Arthur's wife Louise takes his place and beats Muller. Muller is gracious in defeat but Richter is furious with Reinicke after Dr. Martel has exposed his dirty dealings. Written by don @ minifie-1
