Rules and information pertaining to Fischerandom Chess (also called Chess960) are provided below:





Fischerandom Chess is said to favour creative players who do not rely so much on opening theory, and who also have the ability to calculate and navigate non-standard positions accurately. Congratulations to our 2015 Fischerandom Champion, Ignatius Yap, who defeated both Dennis Holland (1927) and Edik Gilmetdinov (1863) on his way to the title.
