"The new way to play chess"? Some have certainly thought so... Chess960 is the random (960 total possible positions including Classical chess) placement of all the pieces behind the pawns. Other than the Amber Chess Festival though, Chess960 has yet to break into the main stream of "official" chess tournament play. Could this be the start of something? What do you think?
