Will more super-GM tournaments say "quicker is better" after the Grand Chess Tour added rapid chess and the success of the Zurich Chess Challenge?

  • Yes, rapid and blitz are clearly the future of chess, and soon.
  • No, classical chess still has a lot of play left to it.
  • I don't know, but I hope so. I love rapid chess.
  • I don't know, but I hope not. I prefer longer chess games.
  • They should go even further and add mostly blitz and bullet.
