Imagine you are to play a game of chess, and if you lose, you die.
You are to play against the world's strongest chess player - Komodo 9 (ELO: 3324). However, you have the aid of the world chess champion - Magnus Carlsen (ELO: 2853). On each move, Magnus will suggest you a move, and it will be up to you to follow the move or make your own. The games are to continue until there is a victor.
Will you trust Magnus your game (and life)?
The dilemma arises when one considers the power difference. You, most likely, will always lose to Magnus. Magnus, most likely, will always lose to Komodo. Magnus, however, may somehow pull off a draw against Komodo - you, however, probably won't even do that with Magnus. The point is, Magnus will probably (if not certainly) never defeat Komodo. So the catch is, no matter what move you think of, it is most likely worse than Magnus's - and no matter what move Magnus thinks of, it's most likely worse than Komodo's. So, knowing that most of the time ("most" because sometime the best move is obvious - like moving the king out of check on the only possible square) there is a better move than what Magnus will suggest, will you follow Magnus - who is certain to get you killed, or make your own moves - which would get you killed if you were playing against Magnus?
HOW DO YOU WIN?!
