What’s needed to calibrate the centrifuges is a weight with a very specific atomic mass so there’s only one of its kind in the world. It’s owned by a man named Livingston who keeps it in his skyscraper. Livingston is hosting a Chess tournament there, and so Nate is going to enter it as a contestant.

Livingston introduces the tournament, and his step-daughter Olivia, who’s a Chess prodigy, and the favorite to win. Nate figures while the tournament’s going on, Livingstone will be focused on her, and not on the weight. There’s a problem though; the terrorist buyers are already there. Eliot and Sterling waylay them while Hardison, posing as a Sheik’s son, asks to speak to Livingston and gets him to show off his security, Hardison recording the entire time.

Nate gives Sterling a name, and asks for everything he has on it. In return he’ll make sure Eliot doesn’t know where he is. Back in Livingstone’s tower, the terrorists take the weight and pay millions in cash. Unfortunately for them, Nate put salt in the gas Parker was going to use to trick the pressure sensors, so when she injected it into the container, the weight was contaminated, and the terrorists are in for a big surprise.
