I guess I failed to take into consideration that this piece can capture pieces in their initial positions without being captured itself. Perhaps that is due to there being poor defense in the Capablanca set-up. Perhaps this is not the reason why, but I think the value of them would probably be greatly decreased by changing the set-up. Do you agree?
