I certainly noted in comments several times Sam's incredible opening theory developed for Schoolbook Chess, as he was doing it here, and it is why Schoolbook is ranked about #10 at NextChess threads, not yet an article. However, Ed Trice did more than Sam probably for important possible Next Chess in Gothic Chess analysis of another array of the same piece-mix. Both men did more than Jose Capablanca that's for sure, who revived original Carrera's 400 years old.

As for paragraphs 3 and 4 of the editorial linked, ''Why Not Play...,'' I respectfully take great exception.  En passant is also 400 years old and f.i.d.e. entrenched 100 years, and anyone ignorant of it shouldn't even be playing. It's ridiculous to consider it discourteous to invoke standard E.P. The unread and unwashed should just be laughed out of the local club.
