Total 960 are a club dedicated to playing chess960, also called Fischer Random Chess. This is a popular variant of the game, and is enjoyed by many of the top grandmasters. Recently Magnus Carlsen himself played a challenge match against Hikaru Nakamura.

We play mostly team matches competitively in leagues: TMCL 960 Division A, 1-World-League 960 Masters and also a league just for those players rated 1400 (in chess960) and lower, S17.

chess960 is exactly the same as standard classic chess except for the opening position, which is randomised to one of 960 possible positions.

This throws most opening knowledge out of the window and makes the players think from the first move.

Bobby Fischer had the following to say about Chess960: “I love chess, and I didn’t invent Fischerandom chess to destroy chess. I invented Fischerandom chess to keep chess going. Because I consider the old chess is dying, or really it’s dead. A lot of people have come up with other rules of chess-type games, with 10×8 boards, new pieces, and all kinds of things. I’m really not interested in that. I want to keep the old chess flavour. I want to keep the old chess game. But just making a change so the starting positions are mixed, so it’s not degenerated down to memorisation and prearrangement like it is today.” - B. Fischer. Here we meet, all those we love the Chess 960. With times and different styles, for different players. Always with an open mind, we are waiting for you, to share the place.
