    A more advanced concept.

    Based on symmetrical king transfers.

    Board reflects along vertical axis, so square d4 and e4 reflect, a1 and h1 reflect, etc

    A more advanced topic based on the table of 108 random possible setups for each player.

    There are 54 pairs in the 108 positions that reflect with each other.

    The setup is double random so total starting positions = 108 x 108 = 11,664

    There are groupings as well based on King and Queen

    Groupings and reflection are used for reduction: for opening preparation, chess databases and chess engines.

    Here is an example of reflection, only the King and Queen have changed position, it is the Sicilian but played on the other side of the board on the dark central square for White.

    It was never the plan man.

    I never planned to publish today.

    Only because of certain things that happened.

    If I am lying then GOD please strike me down dead.
