Hi there Echessers
Just in case the video gets removed from the internet, don’t miss the fantastic Chess960 replay video coverage of the Kings vs Queens competition (men vs women) at the famous St Louis Chess Club. The competition starred Jennifer Shahade and Yasser Seirawan in commentary and featured one of the world’s top GM’s Hikaru Nakumura for the men and Alexandra Kosteniuk for the women. You can learn a lot about Chess960 in the process. Don’t miss it!:
Thanks to Mark Weeks over at his Chess960 blog, news has arrived that Chess960 has been played at the USA Chess Open this year and here is a wonderful discussion about it by a world standard grandmaster Jennifer Shahade. The question in my mind is whether Chess960 died in Germany after the loss of the Mainz chess960 tournament, but is being reborn in the USA! If you want to follow the Chess960 action at another USA tournament with some really top quality commentators, check out the live and replay video feeds of the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis.
