Chess960: Reborn in the USA?

Last post I talked about the difficulty commentating on traditional chess openings at the World Chess Championships. Well amazingly, there is a great Chess960 tournament in progress right now at the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis. The live video feed features three top GM's Yasser Seirawan, Hikaru Nakamura and Jennifer Shahade having some real fun in the 960 commentary. It's a must see:

Kings verse Queens (Men verses Women)

Chess960 lives!

  1. Actually Jennifer Shahade isn't a GM but she more than makes up for it by being fun and attractive.
