Re: Is Banning the Ruy Lopez: Berlin Wall Feasible?

A thematic tournament with super gms where the super drawish lines are mandated, but draws are worthless (0-0 score for any draw, normal 1-0 score for decisive games) could be fun to watch. It'd be interesting to see how they play the exchange french or the berlin or whatever when a draw is the same as a loss. How do they breathe life into such openings?
