Daily Chess 960

I am promoting Chess 960 for Daily games. It's best for the time control as players start thinking in the first move. In Standard chess, the first 8 moves are played in Autopilot. Let's play Daily Chess 960 💪

Agreed! Please see my post (petition quick action 960) to pressure chess.com to make 960 a more visible option!

And leave a comment to support the cause. I'm tired of the standard, aka autopilot, games. Just like you.

I had a Great Escape Draw. Zero pawn vs 3 connected passed pawns in an opposite color bishop endings.

There are plenty of chess960 tournaments.
Issue with chess960 tournaments is if you play two games per opponent, typically those games are the same board. So you analyze the first game before playing the second. That means you see the computer evaluation of the opening position before the second game. I don't think that's in the spirit of 960.

That's a critical observation. Rematch should not use the same opening position.
