Welcome to Fischer Random Chess UK

This site is dedicated to promoting Fischer random chess, also known as Chess960, a variant of chess invented by the former world chess champion Bobby Fischer.

Teach people to play new chess, right away. Why do you offer them a black and white television set, when there is a set in color?” – Bobby Fischer

Compared to standard chess, Fischer random is more dynamic and creative, as players have to rely less on memorised openings and more on their own skills, understanding and intuition.

On this site you will find reports on UK-based Fischer random chess tournaments, game annotations and analysis, and puzzles. You’ll also find links to Fischer random chess resources and information on upcoming events.
