We are playing this SP in this tournament:
Chess960 RandomChess 2010 Championships
Go Back to the Starting Positions Index
On the Opening:
- Naturally weak squares_ b2-b7 ---- h2-h7 (unprotected)
- Castling_ Complicated position to castle as King is already on a-side and both rooks are close to it.
- Playing White_ Really interesting combinations to attack the weak square b7 with Queen and Bishop LS threatening mate (possible traps).
- Playing Black_ Really interesting combinations to attack the weak square b2 with Queen and Bishop DS threatening mate (possible traps).
Example of the general advice up there: Andropov is a strong player (over 1700 in standar chess) but basic rules are more important at 960.
