Chess 960

May 12, 2012, 12:57 AM 0

I enjoy 960 but it's not really a variant of standard chess, only a way of deterring over-reliance on book knowledge of openings.  Capablanca thought chess was played out but it's still going strong.  It may be that standard chess is in principle solvable, as draughts has proved to be, and that by the very best play it is a win for White or a draw, but for me as an average player I continue to be astonished by its richness - by which I mean how master players exasperatingly see moves I don't!  So for patzers the finity of chess is an academic question.
