Standard starting position in Chess960?

  • 5 years ago · Quote · #1


    Has anyone ever ended up with the standard starting position after generating a random position for Chess960? It must've happened, the odds are only 960/1 (though I imagine a lot of the programs which generate 960 starting positions remove the standard position from the equation)?

    Never happened to me before. I agree: the programs which generates 906 starting positions should remove the standard position from the equation.

    If they did, that would become chess-959 - a completely different variant.
