Elon Musk is making headlines after tweeting that the game of chess is "too simple to be useful in real life." After taking a cheap shot  at chess grandmaster, Garry Kasparov, Musk then stated that chess has "no fog of war" and Polytopia - an online map-control strategy game - "addresses these limitations."

The controversial tweet has chess fanatics and players up in arms.

But let's not forget that in June of this year, Elon tweeted this gem basically defending the game of chess, and trolling electronic gamers.

So which is it? Is this all just one massive troll job? Or does Musk truly believe that he's smarter than a game which dates back to the sixth century? It seems to be a case of hubris getting the better of someone who clearly knows he's in the wrong.
