II.1 Before a Chess960 game a starting position is randomly set up, subject to certain rules. After this, the game is played in the same way as regular chess.

Appendix C. Algebraic notation

By |2019-03-08T17:30:16+01:00March 8th, 2019|Categories: |0 Comments

FIDE recognises for its own tournaments and matches only one system of notation, the Algebraic System, and recommends the use of this uniform chess notation also for chess literature and periodicals. Scoresheets using a notation system other than algebraic may not be used as evidence in cases where normally the scoresheet of a player is used for that purpose. An arbiter who observes that a player is using a notation system other than the algebraic should warn the player of this requirement. Description of the Algebraic System C.1 In this description, ‘piece’ means a piece other than a pawn. C.2 Each [...]
