Chess 960 is still mostly Chess

I've decided to gives some games of Chess960 a shot and make some observations on this variant. I'll show in this post one of my first games that wasn't a particularly fierce battle. One of the points to be made is that the usual chess principles can't be ignored! One should still try to control the center right from the opening, develop your pieces, and give them good squares. And of course, tactics tactics tactics.

The very end of the game is a neat tactic and left as a puzzle.
