Black win


Atomic with randomized initial position.

1. Game rules

Initial position is randomly selected, using Chess960 rules. Castling also works as in Chess960.

Apart from that, the game is played according to the normal Atomic rules.


2. Game hints

All the suggestions presented on the Atomic page (and linked internet resources) remain valid in this game too, the same principia of atomic opening, middlegame, and endgame remain in place.

Of course you can no longer refer to the Atomic opening theory, since the first move you are on your own. Be alert! One pointless move will usually let your opponent to organise crushing attack.

More welcome


3. Example games

Some example games:

Immediate attack - nice attack in first moves guaranteed white material advantage, the final cleanup is also worth watching,

Straight to the ending - furious opening leads directly to the complicated ending,

Winning bishop pair - nice example of attacking bishops.

More welcome
