Chess is dying. That much should be obvious. As predicted by Capablanca and as concluded by Bobby Fischer.... These are not random cranks, these are two of the best players of all time, and here are some of the words they have used to describe the game they devoted their life to: solved, dead, terrible, boring.
Of course this destiny of chess is something that a lot of people playing right now are desperate to ignore and pretend isn't true, because if it were (and it is), what would that say about their own pathetic devotion to this game? All those years wasted on a board game about to whither away.
So, recognizing that this bias exists, I hope we can scare some of the butthurt deluded posters away, so that the objective and sensible people remain to answer the following question of mine:
What is next? What comes after Chess? Capablanca chess, Fischerrandom chess, or maybe something else? What will take over?
And, when will it happen? My best bet is that considering the advance of Alpha Zero, that there is going to be an immense surge of chess "players" who win by purely memorizing tactics given to them by Alpha Zero. So, the death of chess will surely be sped up now. Maybe within a decade or two?
