"Black thinks he is going to capture White's Bishop"
from Play Winning Chess, p.164.(by american GM Yasser Seirawan)
What does the use of "be going to" imply?
Thanks in advance
This event may happen. This is similar to "She is going to jump in the lake". She hasn't jumped yet, but may jump sometime in the future. I use "may" here because of the uncertainly of this event happening.
