  • New AlphaZero Paper Explores Chess Variants

    Here is a link to an article which announces a new paper written by DeepMind (co-author is Vladimir Kramnik) where they explore chess variants.
    The paper is 98 pages. Elsewhere there may be summaries of the results condensed for more rapid consumption... They explore variants like
    no-castling, pawns can move 2 squares anytime, pawns can move sideways etc.

    Since we are in a pandemic where chess playing has become almost exclusively virtual (online), perhaps it is time to really explore some of these variants for competitive play, because there is one enticing thing most of them offer: freedom from cheating.

    If there is no engine to play the variant, or if the available engines play weakly, there is no way to cheat.
