You might have a look at things like:

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nash_equilibrium
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prisoner's_dilemma
Your claims are similar to the idea that chess players under some circumstances get a Nash equilibrium. This might happen, say, if the players focus on only simple playing strategies where piece vales have an important role, and they are unable to switch to a different one. Note that the prisoner's dilemma leads to such an equilibrium when repeated, because players can punish for past defections. In chess, this might happen if chess players are unable to develop a more powerful playing theory, say due to the complexity. - Just an input, to give an idea of what reasoning one might expect to support claims of predictions.
