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.

This way all games should be played till bare kings. Draws are still possible, but in tournament play, draw will only earn 0.25 point.

In matches, like for the WC, the rule would be more complicated. Only the arbiter can judge the game as drawn, he can tell the players to keep playing. In case of repition of moves, the last player to repeat gains 0.25, while the other score 0.75. In case of agreed draw, the one who offered the draw gains 0.25, while the other gains 0.75.

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: And Wazir is a freaking moron, if you still grew up well adjusted after being abused while a child, does not mean that the child was not harmed. You should be ashamed of yourself.

SugarDom: I am against radical change in the game of chess. Random chess takes out much of the history of the game. I suggest instead, a little tweak on the game, I.e. , the king promotion role to reduce the draws. Player can win if he promotes his king to the eight rank against a bare king.

SugarDom: <Are those things worse than slavery in the U.S.? The U.S. is still here despite the atrocities of that time (most of them undocumented).> Despite the slavery in the US, atrocities are not the norm. They didn't commit genocide against the Negro population back then, did they?
