My Mostest Brilliantest Chess Idea Ever

To eliminate quick mates I propose the following new chess rule "You may not move a non-pawn onto your opponent's side of the board until all your non-pawns have been moved at least once" "No draw offers during that time either" So may it be posted. So may it be implemented globally :twisted:

Which brings to mind Euwe's quote about Lasker "It is not possible to learn much from him. One can only stand and wonder"

Impressive Vishy. No defeats and 2-0 win in the tiebreak.
I thought they agreed to a draw

Re: "Kirsan Ilyumzhinov announced his resignation as FIDE President"

Mr.Ilyumzhinov you have two careers. In one you're the president of the world chess federation. No one cares about the other one. One of these careers has a future. The other does not. Mr.Ilyumzhinov you are the disease and we are the cure. Stop trying to mate me and mate me! There is no spoon.

Re: 2017 World Cup 2-27 September, Tbilisi

I don't think ratings alone should be considered for any spots in the candidates. Players must play their way in.
