would it be better if new players learnt 960 instead? Then they wouldn't learn stuff parrot-fashion.
You´ll see @ KF.
SerjV is doing that in Komi, Russia. Maybe You want to talk with him ?
Phil asks , in what way it is better to study a chess 960 . The answer such - to comment on each movement in ended to game
In my opinion :
a) a student has to have the good basics in chess
b) a student has to be bored to already known chess openings & databases
c) a student has to have a mentor
This has been my path.
Lauri : a) a student has to have the good basics in chess .
It concerns only tactics .
Lauri : b) a student has to be bored to already known chess openings & databases .
It is necessary to forget all opening from a standard chess .
Lauri : c) a student has to have a mentor .
Not every strong player can be a good mentor
I know, Serj. My path to Random Chess anyway.
To remember from the books the best options for all 960 began , do not have enough of human memory
to sit at a chessboard and encounter a position one has never seen before(or once/twice only)..and THEN play chess.That has got to be better than what players of all standards do..'painting by numbers'!
Yes , and it is desirable that both players did not know the location of the pieces on the board before the beginning of the game . Imagine that they are suited to the chess table on which rests a tablecloth on top . The judge said that the game began and only then pulled off the tablecloth . And a chess clock have already begun readout of time !
I think you can't completely learn chess from playing 960, but I do believe it is a great exercise in planning strategy and tactics for any position that can arise in either type of chess. Some of the positions in standard chess can also arise in 960, as well as, be really similar.
I think you have to actually practice the positions of standard chess itself, in order to get to the highest levels of play in that game type. In other words, I doubt you are going to go from being rated 2500+ in 960, if you never tried standard chess and suddenly be just as good if you started playing standard chess. I think it would take some time for you to get used to the positions. However, if you were that good at 960, I do think you will eventually be that good or even better at standard chess, due to their similarities and their differences.
What if Chess960 was the first game invented? And then an evil being decreed that only Kings on e1/e8 etc.etc. was allowed.The howls of anguished protest would echo around the world for all eternity!
Good point. That evil being still very active not only in chess, but almost every fields in art, science or sports.
