    I hate to put this thought but as I look at it, 'modern Chess' and when I say Modern Chess, I mean with extensive digital coverage and diligent records of each chess game played, In another 10 years or so, the sport is going to get stale right? Like there will be a moment in a few years where Agadmator will be saying "...And as of move 45. We have a completely new game" But we don't see this trend in cricket or football or basketball or even E-sports games too. So does that mean Chess after a point of time will vanish? I mean I'm not crazy to think this right? Even its a sport I very much love, but its the sad truth. Chess isn't like how it was when Fischer, Capablanca, Morphy ruled the stage. Now its more of 'home preparation' of lines etc. which is kinda unoriginal don't you think? There can be no more new openings and crazy variations, so I guess we'll sort of the be last generation to witness Chess before it gets 'revamped' or something. :(
