    KAMIKAZE PROGRESSIVE CHESS

    Kamikaze Chess is played only like progressive chess. In Progressive Chess white starts moving once in turn, Black moves twice in turn, the White three times, etc.

    In AISE tournaments, the King is subjected to the kamikaze effect. Therefore if the player musts make a capture with the king, he/she loses the game. The best players are Vito Rallo (Italy) and Deumo Polacco (Italy).
