I would like to offer my opponent a handicap of e.g. a rook. Would it be possible to include a set of these handicap positions in the list of non-standard starting positions?
Or is there some existing way of loading a board position and online-playing from there?
No, but I now have moved this to the Suggestion forum for you.
I also thought about this....but there is also another reason to offer this....in tournaments.
For example, I'm in a chess.com group that provides tournaments, but they randomly select the pairings. Inevitably, a 1000 rated player gets paired with a 2000 rated player.
Has a chess rating handicap system ever been developed, even outside Chess.com? Being able to setup a board, and play that board against an opponent, would provide a simple way to start this ("queens odds"), for example.
Chess.com: Please implement handicaps in your system. I have friends that are drastically worse players than I am and I'd like to be able to offer them some form of handicap, whether it be time odds or the old fashioned piece odds. Please please please implement this.
