i did it in 6 moves.
This is not real Chess. Any body playing this crap is immediately thrown out of my club and cannot come back for 289 days.
Sounds like you don't know what to do once out of your comfort zone. Chess 960, like Fischer said, is more of a challange because it forces you to think.
According to tubebender, Fischer was a loser who couldn't handle real chess
During some friendly matches I managed to pull the Fool's mate on a friend.
But the more fun one was the Légal trap during a blitz tournament. Oh boy, he was mad.
CHESS 96O is doesnt matter in real life....its waste i think...what u guys tHink....
I agree with you. Losers play this crap because they can`t handle "real Chess".
...notwithstanding the fact that most, if not all, chess960 championships winners are GMs in regular chess.
OK. Let`s all settle down, now. Most successful Chessplayers can play these " variants" of Chess quite well. I`m just saying, in my observation of average "woodpushers", is that they do worse in these forms of Chess than the "traditional" game. The sad and pathetic part is that they think that they can or will do better in these "non traditional" forms of the game. The truth (again from my own observations and comparing notes from other organizers) is quite different. Perhaps I should "semi-apoligize" for what a few percieve as me making blanket statements; it really is not in my nature to be that way. The bottom line is this: If you are having fun, go ahead and do it as long as you are not hurting anybody.
This happens to be the quickest checkmate for white.
Not really a fool, more of an idiot...
Richard Rapport won in 5 moves today against a 2011 fide rated player. 5!! It was the old Caro Kann smothered mate with 5. Nd6.
Unbelievable. It's like that 2011 player threw his game.
If not, he was simply intimidated by Rapport's rating.
Wow, that is bad...
I just had a 9-mover in a 30 minute (!) game; weird opening!:
There was one 2000+ rated player that I faced in a number of different Open OTB tournaments in New Brunswick, decades ago. He was a very active player... played dozens of games per year, in a lot of tournaments... and in the particular year that I'm thinking of, he only lost five games total.
Three of them to me; one in nine moves, one in eleven moves, and one in thirteen moves.
Stop with solving tactics ??
