Bubuli Cup 2011

Nf3em Cup 2012

The Future of Chess
Gladiator Rules - No Draw Rules

1) Long Armageddon Time Control
White 60 minutes per game / Black 45 minutes per game. 30 secs increment per move

White, Black wins = Full win, 1 point
In case of a draw, black wins

2.) Piece promotion: N/B >R, R>Q when no more legal pawn moves on both sides. Pieces can be re-promoted N/B>R>Q by moving out and back the 8th rank.

3. Bare kings race to the 8th rank.

Combined all 3 and no more draws. And you keep lively tactics till the endgame. Opposite colored bishops will not be drawn. K+P v K, K+B v K, K+N v K, will not be drawn. Heck bare kings will not be drawn either.

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: <gokusano: do you think we can do as much here by just kibitzing? We are just mere kibitzers posting our emotions. The real battle is between Wesley's hanlers and the NCFP. Instead of sannamagizing, why not spice befriend NCFP? They should endear themselves to the people who ...
