I am happy with your choice of name, Heavy Chess, Jean-Louis. I am seldom that good with picking names for CV inventions - I somewhat regret not having picked a spiffier name like Heavy Chess, instead of the name Sac Chess, that I used for the original 2 Amazons per side concept. The real advantage of calling it Sac Chess seems to be that one very often sacrifices pieces for ones of lesser value, so it has that meaning. Sac Chess also has a disadvantage I discovered later, that there is a company that sells chess equipment that uses the initials SAC.
