''What's it worth?,'' asks Betza, of an Iron Knight. He enunciates that iron pieces cannot be captured. Piece values were Ralph's specialty. Well, Betza is not one-dimensional, and besides hundreds of piece-value determinations in quick study without computer intervention, has many other specializations within CVs as designer, as well as OrthoChess herself as Chess Master. In CVs Betza works in subject matter of weak pieces, even weaker ones, multiple-occupancy, themed CVs, momentum, changing piece-types and move-turn orders, moving opponent units. In a variation Iron Pawn Chess he stipulates the ''Ironic nature of the chosen Pawn revealed'' only when you try to capture her. All we were doing is looking for Halloween-themed Nemeroth in two articles and got distracted.
