There is no hatred.
When the blessings of the Lord is not there,
it is time to move on.

This is SugarDom, signing off from chess.

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: <Wesley was aware of this idea by reading Giri's article. White has nothing better than 16.a4 which leads to a forced draw with correct play by both sides, as occurred in the game Guliyev - Gustafsson at the German Chess League (Schachbundesliga, November 2014). > The strange

SugarDom: <KingchecksQueen: Wesley was very careless with 15) a3 , instead of the obviously threatened Queen move. Unforgivable. He deserves to lose this game. This is a lesson for him.> What the heck are you talking about? 15.a3 is the top computer move.

SugarDom: This is only person, but with many handles. He's not really a bad person, this Glenn Salem. He's just having fun. And he is some sort of a legend in CG with all the ideas he started like "pampered Goldfish", "erupting volcano", etc...
