Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-21-07  think: FischerRandom is certainly an interesting concept. It has some potential problems, though. One opening position could favor one player, although this seems unlikely. A bigger problem is that opening repertoires are chosen for the distinct style of each player, and FischerRandom makes it harder to say, pick and choose between closed and open positions, and tactical vs. positional type play. This game sure makes it look like the tactical player is well-suited to this variant.
Jan-21-07  AliMatok: i prefer this FISCHERANDOM chess rathe than the memorized classical chess that we have. only those with great memories will survive rather than the best thinkers. correct me if i am wrong and prove it

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I like Bronstein's version better, in which Black doesn't have to put the pieces on the exact same files as does White. An aggressive player, might, for example, put his King on the opposite side from White.

  Sibahi: Is there a link for Bronstein's version ? I've heard about it but I've ssen nothing.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: About 2 decades ago, the US Chess Federation sponsored a match (I think between Benko and Bisguier) using Bronstein's rules. You might try to look it up there.

The rules aren't much different from Fischerandom. Each sides sets up the pawns, and then the first eight moves consist of placing the pieces on back rank squares. You have to ensure that you have one dark-square and one light-square Bishop. A game can begin, 1.Ba1,Bh8; 2.Bb1,Ba8, for example. Naturally, you don't have to start with the Bishops.

Jan-21-07  GrandPatzerSCL: Could this particular game be hidden in CHESSGAMES.COM??
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sibahi: where there ? I don't live at the US, and the only games database I have access to is this one.

This game sounds like Pre-chess .. is it ?

Jan-21-07  sfm: I played FischerRandom once, by 'mistake', as my opponent had selected it on some on-line service. I went with it. I liked it a lot! From the very first move I had to think and the game looked completely different. Refreshing! Thanks to for staying open-minded and bringing games like this.

  Wade Keller: My gut reaction is negative. Like listening to a great symphony with the theme jumbled or reversed.
Jan-21-07  aldehyde: I know that it would sound strange to all the players in this forum, but i m not shy in admitting that i cant understand what game was played on the board. certainly, it isnt the chess i m used 2. i never saw this thing.

when i opened this page, at first, i thought that there might be sm error in loading the page. but then i found, after refreshing and viewing the game and after seeing ur comments, that the webpage is alright and u all were talking of some "fischerrandom". so would anybody plz help me and tell me that what is this all about? i never came across this thing b4!

  Sibahi: see it in Wikipedia ..
Jan-21-07  aldehyde: thanks, i got it. its a gud concept 4 practical players, hu prefer less to b theoritical.

  JohnBoy: How does one go about finding FRC games here? Opening category 000 is useless, as it includes many odds games and such.
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: By its very nature,it is a very unusual game. But to me,it is NOT chess. It would be like playing football to score in the middle of the field,instead of at the ends.

It would be a good treat,but baked Alaska is not as tasty if eaten every night.

  Sibahi: Maybe they should a new system all together. For example "FR" then the position's number. In this case instead of the usual <000> they might write <FR 667> .
Jan-22-07  syracrophy: For the ones that are interested, here's a page, where you can play classic chess, Fischerandom (In this page, Fischerandom is called "Alocado"), Blitz, and other types of chess.

But of course, it's a spanish page. For the interested ones, it's a great page

  WarmasterKron: <JohnBoy> There are only two other Fischerandom games in the database: Leko vs Adams, 2001 and Leko vs Adams, 2001
Aug-08-08  ravel5184: Team White vs Team Black, 2007
Dec-20-08  WhiteRook48: Fischerrandom is fun! Hey everyone how about a game of Fischerrandom?
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: a brilliant game!!
