Other mistake: Robert opens an old chess game on his laptop, to play the move Miguel hinted; "Bishop takes Rook Pawn." That move is generally part of a Poison Pawn attack. Where the Bishop is protected by its Queen, and captures the Rook Pawn, placing the King in check. In the film the setup on the board is wrong. There's nothing protecting the Bishop once it captures the Pawn, so the King will simply capture the Bishop. Losing a Bishop to gain a Pawn is a terrible sacrifice. The move makes no sense, considering they were supposed to be superior chess players. (00:31:06)
