Kasparov on Chess960, etc...

Post by Mats Winther » Wed Feb 10, 2010 8:44 am

It was interesting to read the ChessBase interview ( http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp?newsid=6113 ) with Kasparov where he suggests choosing a subset of Fischer Random that would include only natural positions. I have tried to promote a similar idea where, for instance, 25 positions can be selected from the Chess960 array, by choice of the players:

My proposal is to enhance orthochess by a manual relocation procedure, whilst keeping the option to play the standard position. I have described different versions of this idea:
