I have found this question reading 538: “Are Computers Draining The Beauty Out Of Chess?” Nice, but I wonder why computers have not killed our willingness to play chess at all.
I cannot understand why people still spend time and effort playing chess, particularly professional chess. Oh, of course, money. Let me re-frame it: I do not understand why someone might be interested in watching other humans play chess, much less pay for it. When I was child, playing chess was… heroic, but today, c’mon!
Humans are mincemeat to a good computer chess engine.
Playing chess professionally is like a business trip from Madrid to Beijing on foot, or trying to build the Empire State without cranes. No, seriously, what’s the point?
The only thing that remains to be done, is to solve the game. And it seems this will not happen tomorrow.
