This is interesting Paul, or as Spock would have said it: “Fascinating”. That reminds me of one episode of the (now cancelled) Start Trek Enterprise show. In the beginning, we have these advance beings that travel around “invading” the bodies of other species to study them.

So we have two crew members playing chess and after just a few moves, maybe three or four, one says “mate in 32 moves” for example. Then it’s the turn for the other guy to play and this goes on for a couple of times when they say: “Chess is such a predictable game!”

I’ve always wondered if, let’s say when quantum computers become mainstream, when we won’t be limited to “binary” anymore, if that scenario will become true!

May chess live long and prosper!

Going one step further, if a computer could see 6300 plys ahead, it could completely solve the game.

In "How Computers Play Chess" by Levy/Newborn it is stated that due to the 50 move rule(not counting 100 in several situations) [that is, it is a draw if a game goes 50 moves without a capture or pawn move], there are at most 3,150moves in a game.  This would be interesting to derive.
