I doubt that chess 960 improves your regular chess all that much ....but it is loads of fun. Definitely makes me think.
I think it forces you to learn to evaluate a position from move 1. In that regard it is good. I wonder how many here that don't support 960 support bughouse! ;-)
oops, i forgot the e. sorry!
ok, i changed it.
I'm out of my comfort zone in 960.. freaks me out! lol
Playing something random just makes those that want to feel superior due to frustration and lack of understanding better about themselves.
That's an awful lot of psychology just for a board-game choice.
I'll say.. next TonyH will be telling me I have an inferiority complex because I hate en passants.
I think it's a nice change of pace.
not really it makes chess even funner...but regular chess is boss
Regular chess is great, but this way you don't come against a theory champ. They must play you based on their understanding, and you as well.
