    1. Have a higher rating.

    2. Play opening moves fast like you know 960 opening theory by heart.

    3. Move your queen a lot.

    4. Get into your enemy's part of the board.

    5. Profit.

    Instead of 7...Nb4, Black could have moved his Queen there instead 7...Qb4 -- copying your style of moving the queen a lot. Wink  If the rook didn't move, it might work out to attack it with 8...Bd4; and otherwise the Black position looks defensible.  So 7...Nb4 was an inferior move, giving you a pawn and better position.

    You are right, I guess Nb4 deserves a "?!". :)

    @oran_perrett: what joke? It's the actual game.

    About the little game, it is significant that Black brought the Queen out first, and that was planned from move 3...b5.  Instead, Black might have played either 3...d6 challenging a c4-c5 pawn advance... or 3...d5 covered by the bishop.  Either move would have allowed the corner knight's development to b6.

    @ C-nack: As you can see, these Chess 960 opening moves intrigue me. Thanks!

    In the game given above, opening with 1.c4 looks to be a weak way to start out. The reasoning: if castling is desired, then doing that on the left-hand side is indicated since the bishop tandem in the right-hand corner dictates moving the pawns on that side.

    But, as the above game develops, neither side looks very attractive for castling!
