Very interesting, especially the match played by the grandmasters. <p>I wonder whether the fact that R+K againt K cannot checkmate becomes a problem when players get more experienced with this game. For example, R+K can achive a tie againt R+K+P by sacrificing the rook. <p>To overcome this, one might consider prohibiting walking on w1-w4 with any piece or at least with the king. Or one might change the roles to make a stalemate a loss for the stalemated player.
