Absolute Statements? Absolutely Not!

Bobby on the same subject many years later on Icelandic Radio:

He [Capablanca] wanted to change the rules [of chess] already, back in the twenties, because he said chess was getting played out. He was right. Now chess is completely dead. It is all just memorisation and prearrangement. It’s a terrible game now. Very uncreative.


It seems that someone forgot to tell the Don about it…
