I am skeptical of the idea of Advanced Chess for one simple reason: it supposes that a human + machine team is stronger than the machine working by itself. With chess engines reaching estimated strengths of 3300+ nowadays, it's dubious that even Magnus Carlsen could improve on the engine's analysis.
I agree advanced chess is lame and bogus too. So I don't think that it would be such a big deal to have a free castling tournament for the big boys, to see what they think about it.
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.
