    Does that mean you can choose any starting position at all? Or are you restricted to a fixed list?

    you can choose from the positions already listed, or search it by typing the names if they are not on the list, like i did for SG opening.

    The fix is pretty good but not for looking anything up by name. If you know the ECO code they seem to have a pretty big choice of openings and variations available. http://www.365chess.com/eco.php

    I still think it would be good (even best) if we could create (or find) a start position by entering the moves. For example; there are many Reti positions which transpose to English and/or Zukertort and/or KIA and/or others and the search for those can be time consuming and unproductive. The naming of openings in the list is not always accurate, nor do all online databases always agree on the names of openings. Some openings have multiple names and even nicknames.

    When searching for a start position there should be a small "hover popup" diagram to facilitate the search. It's the position that counts, not the name or even the ECO.

    The problem of people creating ridiculous start positions is self correcting since opponents would not accept those challenges unless they wanted to. If you follow "Opening of the Day" you can see there are countless ridiculous start positions which already have ECO numbers. So what's the difference?

    By entering the moves you would have what you wanted instead of sometimes having to settle for what is available or what you can find.

    I'm 100% with wormrose.

    That would also facilitate endgame tournaments.

    endgame tournament? that would be interesting, please let me know if you organize any Laughing

  • #169

    Endgame tournaments would be great. Please add them chess.com staff :)

  • #170

    It would be too much to ask for Chess.Com to add  official endgame tournaments but if they would simply allow any start position, we could fairly easily organise them ourselves.

    How do endgame tournaments work?

    That would depend on the 'inventor'

    At the moment, I know of no chess site which holds them. I know that it is possible on some sites to 'create' such a thing but they don't really have the quantity of members to have sufficient interest to make it worthwhile.
