Study 960 games

sbowers3

Is there any easy way to find 960 games to study? I thought I might look through some tournament games but there doesn't appear to be a way to search for just 960 games.

At this stage the Chess960 databases are scattered and you would have to do a lot of work to uncover them all.

Advanced Chess960 (computer assisted) games at:

http://schemingmind.com/ (with downloadable database not sure?)

and at:

http://lss.chess-server.net/info/home/ (this one I think has a downloadable database which would be highly recommended because the quality of the games being Advanced Chess960 would be very high).

There is a ever growing database of 87,000 computer only games of Chess960 being played 24/7 around the clock at:

If you want information and knowledge on Chess960 then visit a huge blog at:

If you want to play Chess960 in competition and earn a few hundred euro's then get online with your computer and play Advanced Chess960 at:

ICCF 1st Chess960 World Cup (October)

I think the ICCF also has databases on Chess960. Remember that Advanced Chess960 is an excellent way to play Chess960 (so long as it is publically declared up front) because the chess engines do not know how to play the Chess960 opening very well and so human/computer cooperation produces excellent games.

Enjoy
