Regardless of its advantages Berolina Chess is very big step away from orthochess and is not likely to become popular. 'Reformed Chess' is a very small change with a big impact. There is also a greater chance of king attacks while it's easier for a pawn to break through. Time will tell how good it is. /Mats
