We regret to advise that, due to unforeseen circumstances, the 2018 FischerRandom Rapid Tournament has been cancelled.
Fischer Random Chess, also known as Chess960, is a variant where the starting positions of the major pieces are randomized. This takes player out of the many prepared opening positions of classical chess, resulting in more spontaneous and surprising situations. The resulting matches are generally entertaining, but still full of challenges.
