    Of course, you would have gone to prison for life, but we all have to make sacrifices, don't we?

    This, OP shouldve taken one for the team.

    I understand your frustration, and better you vent about it on the internet instead of shooting him in the back 6 times, LoL. Fun story.

    In 960 the set up for both sides should be same.

    blacks king and queen are in the right position.

    White's king and queen are messed up.

    In 960 the pieces can be anywhere, that's the whole idea.  As long as all the pieces are in identical positions for both parties, it does not matter if one side is correctly set up as per tradition.

    In 960, however, the pieces are still set up identically on both sides; aren't they?

    Am I the only one who sees the 960 merits ? Pieces are set up identically in that in both cases queens are opposite kings and all other pieces are where they should be.

    Yes. Are you suggesting that this board is set up by 960 rules? If so, look again. In 960, identical pieces are accross from each other on the board. Here, they are not.

    You get 960 and, for advanced players only, you get 960 unplugged. Is there anyone else out there who agrees with me ?

    I once played a game at my club where the position repeated 3 times and I said it was a draw. He said it was not a draw because it was not the repetition of position but the repetition of moves that made it a draw. The rule book says its a draw if the position repeats. I let him win and now whenever he asks me for a game I tell him I do not want to play with him. I noticed that people are always making up rules. One person I played with I beat because the clock ran out and he said he had actually won because he had mate the next move. This, of course, is not in the rule book. It seems that people are always making up their own rules and in a sense the kid was right when he said chess is just a game and people can make up their own rules if they want. When I play, I always play by the USCF and FIDE rules and if someone does not want to play by those rules, I simply refuse to play with him.
