A True Pacifist - I renounce all forms of violence. I’m a Big Fan of Donald Trump since The Apprentice.

The Future of Chess

A new rule would eliminate 90% of the draws in chess. Too often top grandmasters call it a draw when there are still lots of pieces in the board.

The new rule is King Promotion. Simply - you can win the game by advancing your King in the 8th rank when your opponent's king is bare. Plus another rule - First to repeat 3 times, loses.

This way all games should be played till bare kings. Draws are still possible, but both players earn 0 point.

Good rules are rules that do not essentially change the appearance of the game, so chess variants are out. Fischerrandom is out. Chess squares and pieces shouldn't be changed either, so Capablanca variant chess with the Chancellor piece is out. ===
(To be recited at the commencement of the tournament day) Raise your right hand.
I am a chess player.
I am an honorable person.
I will not lie, cheat or fix games nor tolerate any among us who does. I will not pre-arrange game results.
I promise to do my best in every game and to conduct myself most sincerely. I believe in God who sees and knows everything I do and even without God, I believe in Truth, Honesty and Fair Play. This is my honor oath. May I suffer the consequences if I break my oath. May I receive punishment if I am untrue to myself. So be it. Amen.

SugarDom: Giving draw odds to the champ, is already fair enough. If FIDE required rapid and blitz tie-breakers, that’s actually less advantageous to the defending champion.
