No Castling Chess?


Former world chess champion Vladimir Kramnik teamed up with Deep Mind, the developers of the Alpha Zero neural network.

The article, “Kramnik And AlphaZero: How To Rethink Chess‎” on chess.com website talks about this experimenter wherein Deep Mind trained Alpha Zero to play a chess variant where castling was not allowed. According to Kramnik the play is more dynamic even though the win/loss/draw rates are similar to standard chess.

Also, Elz talks about this article in a video on his YouTube channel and shows a game where Alpha Zero played against itself using the No Castling rule.

What do you think about playing chess with the no castling rule?
