    When Covid-19 is over they should do a no technology tournament, in which no one has access to technology while staying. So there is no way they can use tech to analysis moves, and the players get literally as long as they want to move. They can dedicate a person with technology in which if an emergency happens they ring them and that person gets in touch with the player. Point being to make it a bit like the old days when there was no way to use tech to analysis games.

    ⚠️ I have a theory of my own: Maxime DID indeed prepare better but using computer engines to do the thinking for him ... as with Hikaru plays more than often intuitive without using computers resulting in more wins as he does not have to memorize so many possibilities. He just be himself (without any help). And sure Maxime may be creative himself too time to time but NOT at the level of Hikaru Nakamura.

    When he says, "it's a completely new game", what exactly is meant by that and how does he decide that at that point it's a new game? Meaning, it's never been seen before in chess, or that where the pieces are on the board at that moment equate to sort of "starting over" with the match?
