Alice appears to have some soykaf against chess….>>1598
You lost interest in chess because of one rule, in which the only time the rule would be applicable would be if one player had a lot more foresight than the other—in other words, if someone was a genius and could force someone to check themselves.
To my knowledge, it hasn't been proved yet that standard chess is a white win. Yes, white has an advantage because it plays first. That's not a proof, though.
Basically, you hate chess because you think it's a waste of time, that even if you train to play as perfectly as you could, the result is predetermined in which color you play as. You can't rely on your opponent to mess up, so if you end up playing white then you automatically lose.
To me, why is that important? Chess is a game of strategy, but it's also a game to enjoy with people. Look at the professional chess players today. Nobody plays "perfectly" and it ultimately is a game requiring a lot of strategic skill and forward thinking.>>1599
I have a hard time telling if you are soykafposting or being serious.
