Capablanca and Lasker played Double Chess, an average sort of CV. There are actually several CVs with the word "double" in the name that have two Kings. Maybe Karjakin and Carlsen could be prevailed to play Capablanca's Double Chess next week for world title instead of Simpleminded F.I.D.E. No, naturally because f.i.d.e. founding in 1924 shut out variations such as in castling, and Capablanca Chess on 8x10 in 1920s as well as Double Chess on very large 12x16 here in 1929 were last gasps for Grandmasters critical thinking.
