    I'm not particularly interested in centaur games, but I've heard that if you try to get by on engine analysis alone on the ICC you'll get eaten alive.  It's not something I plan on getting into any time soon, but it's interesting to think that they could advance chess theory beyond what computers alone can give us.

    Lame so incredibly lame. Part of the beauty of chess is how the great players took advantage of blunders. The funny thing is sometimes while playing through these games,I didn't even know they were blunders until the refutation was played! Advanced chess seems sterile to me.

    I just think that it's time to take a closer look at free castling.

    I wonder what the elite players would think of free castling.

    They'd probably think it childish. The way professional cricket players would find the 'one-bounce one-hand' rule childish.

    Free castling could breathe fresh new ideas and life into chess without completely changing the character of the game.
