Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am wondering if there is a forumula for the number of possible positions in chess afternmoves. I searched google and found some estimates (including Shannon's number) for the number of possible positions after n=1,2,3,4 but seems to get a little hazy after that.

I was also wondering if it would be an infinite series that converges to a number.

If this isn't possible to do for some reason I would be interested in knowing exactly why it isn't doable. Thanks in advance,

Lee
