Chess960 is deranged chess. I used to hate it. But I like it now.

Yes but chess 960 is not chess they are different games what you have to understand bout this topic is you have to pick sides. You have to either join the people with common sense that think that chess and chess 960 (which shouldn't even have chess in the name because it used to be called Fischer Random until some "experts" thought you shouldn't have someone's name in the name of a game even though there are chess-based/related games that have that) are different games or join the stupid people who think that chess 960 is the same game as chess even though they are different games but yet somehow they are the same. PS I recommend you join the average, civilized human beings who have common sense.

The OP called this topic

Chess960 Is Chess

 

What if I write the following statement, is it correct?

Chess960 Is Chess = True

I think that it is correct because in this context the word "Chess" means the entire family of games. It means that Chess960 belongs to the family of related games.

 

Now what if I write this:

Capablanca Chess Is Chess = True

This would also be correct for exactly the same reasons as stated for the first example above.

 

But what if I write this:

Chess960 Is Classical Chess = True

Well in this case the above statement is not correct because I am being very specific.

I am actually directly comparing 2 different games: Chess960 and Classical Chess

 

The following statement is correct

Chess960 Is Classical Chess = False

BR298-NuclearFusion

Yes but when we say chess we mean classical chess because that's how everybody says it e/x "Hey do you want to play a game of chess?" "What kind of chess?" "uh... Chess.?." Nononno there's a whole family of chess. Which game?" "Uh... donno?".

The following statement is false:

Chess 960 is Chess.

The following statement is true:

Chess 960 is in the family of Chess-related games.

How about this one, it has always been my favourite because it annoys all the "experts".

 

Chess is a chess variant.

I am annoyed with you! You are on chess.com and do nothing, no games, no lessons, no tactics!

You should not even be on this topic, because you don't even play chess!

wars64

No games, no lessons, no tactics.

That means that you looked at my profile.

What exactly did you see there man.

You saw me playing man.

Let's think about it this way: Chess960 is chess, but at the same time, it's not.

Weird. Really gets the noggin joggin'.

BR298-NuclearFusion

Oh yeah, uh NO!

Chess 960 is a different game from chess.
