    ..Chess is like an exam..... you havent studied for

    ..If you're good at Chess it means you are very intelligent and could potentialy do great things
    ..... but that you might have wasted that playing way too much chess

    also known as Fischer Random.

    To save you googling it's where the starting position of the pieces are random. Black's and White's still stand opposite. There are other finesses but I'm not familiar and will google as well when the time comes.

    Cheers
    Garrett.
