Searching for high level chess959 player (Part I)

When Zoran asked me how to castle in this game, I did realize again how chess960 known in master level chess: A variant. No it is not! (quite opposite). Chess960 is chess itself. #518 (RNBQKBNR) is called chess by everyone. It is not correct. It’s just a variant of chess. A variant almost solved by quantum computers. And yes these computers will also solve entire chess (I mean all other 959 starting positions). But there is a trick here: Human brain can’t handle to memorize all 959 starting positions. Good news. Chess won’t die! Now please stop worrying about survival of chess. You should worry about the #518.

Tomorrow I’ll play against James Plaskett again. He is not only a strong #518 player, but also a very strong chess player.

Tomorrow will be a big day for me

Today I’ve played 3 games against two strong IM’s only took half points from these games. Game#1 was an absolute win for me, but zeitnot and greed made the blunder. Anyway my opponent was very quick and found defensive moves very quickly. I’ve played two more games against a Serbian IM Zoran Petronijevic, I only took half point from two games. He’ll send his annotations very soon, he is also a annotator for Sahovski Informant.

Well, tomorrow, I’ll play against Plaskett, H James, (British Chess Champion in 1990). He is a very tough player, games will be interesting.

1. c4 e6? (I am inexperienced player and i simply didn’t saw that my h7 pawn is hanging! Better was 1….Ng6 protecting h7 pawn)

2. b3?! (this move is a mistake – after simple 2.Bxh7 Black is lost)

2… Nf6 (one more mistake. Two first moves and two mistakes! How hard is 960 chess! Better was 2….Ng6)

3. Bxf6 gxf6 4. Bxh7 (pawn down without any compensation – position is lost) Rg7 5. Bc2 c5 6. Nf3 Ng6 7. Ng3 Bxg3

8. hxg3 d5 (clear mistake after which Black’s position is lost. Better was for instance 8…b6.)

Why Chess959 instead of Chess960?

Simple. Starting position of #518 overused by many. In this blog, I (FIDE Arena International Master) will play other titled players and publish these games. Some of these games will be annotated by players. The style of these annotations will be mostly Sahovski Informant format. But sometimes descriptive style can be used. If you have a FIDE title and want to play against me in a real chess game (thinking starts from very first move), feel free to comment here or message me. Ok, lets start:
