    I think Erik said something about this in the chess.com IMs vs the world match, but not much. He said bughouse might come sooner, and that they are currently working on live chess tournaments.

    Don't quote this because I might be remembering it inaccurately.

    Bughouse would be great.

    Bughouse, Live Chess960 and tournaments would all be nice. But Live chess960 is what Im most interested in trying out, as the other two I can just go to the local club :)

    The Internet Chess Club has live chess960, but not many plays it, and most of all the problem is that they want to play blitz or bullet, when I do need time to understand the initial position, because they have different properties, and possibilities.


    I suppose that makes sense. I'd love to play time controls like 3+5, 5+2 or even longer C960, especially as I doubt theres as much of a risk of people cheating compared to the normal blitz at "longer" blitz time controls.

    Anyone an idea where I can watch some matches? Ive found one or two on youtube, but Id like to see more (and preferably live) matches.

    Thanks!

    There are internet chess servers that support Chess960 (calling it frc, for "Fischer Random Chess"). In particular a very famous and popular one. Usually there are one or two frc games going on there, even in the quiet hours. (The command "games /w" shows you all "wild" games, which includes the frc.)

    Unfortunately mentioning the name of that server invariably gets your posts deleted here.
