Faster timecontrols so as to reduce draws?
In an interview Capablanca was posed the question: “There are so many drawn games nowadays. Especially this is so between grand masters. What’s the remedy? A faster time limit?”
Of course, things have to be kept in perspective. Capablanca loved to play blitz chess (often 20 seconds a move in those days), but certainly not as a replacement for classic chess.
The above gif of Capablanca is taken from the 1925 film Chess Fever. The quotations are from Miguel Sanchez’ definitive book on the Cuban world champion: A Chess Biography (page 320).
