  gregory2188: I didn't know that you could win games without castling! Lol
Sep-03-17  Ulhumbrus: After 12 Rg1 it is up to Black to find a way to open the game in the centre against White's king. This suggests 12...e5
Sep-04-17  Isilimela: 29 ... f4 looks a little impatient to me. Couldn't black have continued building up with e5 and perhaps Rf7/Rbf8 ? If white completes 'artificial castling' with Kg1, the king-side still looks a bit shaky without a WSB.
Sep-04-17  ChessHigherCat: Aronian shows what he thinks of rules of thumb in this game: By move 14, he has traded off both bishops against knights, decided not to castle, posted his own knights on opposite rims of the board, and opted to double his pawns!
Sep-04-17  Arconax: Well these top players sure like to break the rules, they do it all the time. This was an extreme case though.
Sep-05-17  Isilimela: Indeed so - somewhat "Laskerian" in so far as one has the impression of white's position being under pressure/inferior when in fact it never really is.

Sure you can! I even made a game collection on it: Game Collection: Castling: Winning Without It. Currently 40 games and growing. I actually had another version of this but deleted them as they got too <LARGE>.

Mostly random games (I just add to it as I discover them). Check out the different types in there.

But as <Arconax> mentions, it happens all the top level.
