I don't play chess 960, or Fischer's chess. I've seen a lecture or two about it, but I was never interested.
Last week I was a bit bored so I decided to participate in a chess tournament on chess.com. By mistake I joined a chess 960 tournament, but didn't want to resign. It's an online game so I wanted to have some fun.
I'm unrated in chess 960. I never play it. I played vs players rated 1400+ and they beat me. I try to apply the normal chess principles but it doesn't work.
For example I've come to the conclusion that the best move if you're white in the opening is
g4. So the white bishop and the queen can move, and the rook later on.
I think the knights are not as important, and there's no need to develop them so quickly, because the bishops are too strong. You're never gonna be able to control the center of board, especially if the opponent decided to play with the queen after
The knight on
b1 is useless and the rook on
a1 is in constant danger, i don't know how to save it. I can't waste time developing the knights in order to bring the rook to a better place. By then the opponent will control the board.
Castling on the king side is a mistake. That's if you have time to castle. This game is very aggressive and maybe the best way is to keep attacking.
All that is what I think about the game. Maybe i'm wrong. I don't like it. I'm not used to it. I don't know any opening. I try to analyze each position, and next thing I know, I'm checkmated. I try to develop into a familiar position, but the bishops and the queen are not letting me take a breath!
The openings I read about are easy on paper but when you play the game it's very different, or maybe my opponents are too aggressive.
So I hope someone could point me to the best practices, the best openings for someone who plays regular chess. I don't need to be a pro at it, it's just for fun!
@Kilmazing True but i have found this to be the most frequently used, at least on chess.com or at least lets say in the tournament that i'm playing
So i was wondering what could be done if you have that position
