She knew she was in trouble.  He had some kind of plan, some kind of strategy and it was going to result in her losing to him.  But that was nothing new.  It didn’t really bother her much to lose all the time.  She would always laugh and have fun playing with her Dad.  She scanned the board and tried to see a turn or two ahead.  She couldn’t see his move.  So, she shrugged and moved her knight taking another pawn.

He grinned and went in for “the kill” and in two moves he had her queen.  She shook her head and said, “How can you see so far ahead?”

“Just lucky that way I guess.  Another?”

“Sure.”

They began to set up the board for a rematch.
