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.
Let's just stay with the current castling move. Changing at this stage would cause too much confusion.
Here's the article link to Bring Back Free Castling!!
Free Castling is a reform that would be well worth
adopting to reduce the impact of theory and computers on the game
as it is played now. This would send publishers in a scurry to find
books of old Italian games as 99.9% of current opening theory
would immediately become redundant.
