Re: World Fischer Random Championship

It'd be nice if we could post playable pgn here, but I assume the BB pgn code won't cope with castling.

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

So what's the consensus towards Kb1 and Rc1 castling on the queenside? It's probably a slightly improved version, but the difference from normal chess isn't enough to convince the chess world to switch. If we hope to have millions of chess players adopt a new variant, it must solve major problems t...

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

So, if after rolling one of the 960 positions you get the opening one from chess, do people just sit and play a normal game? If not, perhaps the best name for the game would be Fischer 959 :mrgreen: Yes, the rules say that you just play normal chess in that case, although I think that some frc even...

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

The question is whether #518 is too similar to standard position that it will not qualify as valid FRC position. For instance in the ongoing event in my country now. Maybe or maybe not. You posted the Queen and the King in the wrong squares in your diagram, Therefore, the answer in NO :roll: I forg...

Re: World Fischer Random Championship

It seems to me that Fischer Random is working out better than I expected; I thought it would solve only the preparation problem in chess, but it seems to be doing wonders for the draw rate as well, as has already been shown in computer chess in the CCRL testing. Do you have any thoughts on why Fisc...
