'1ABCLargeCV': This has normal symmetry; no one bothers with east-west symmetry. Dominique Leste's Archbishop Chess last month has exact same initial position, and two of Carrera-Bird-Capablanca's (N+B=Cardinal) were done before year 2000 too(Janus Chess). One Pawn's additional power of forward-only Ferz: any of a hundred other rather innocuous powers might work as well to confound opening theory; no creativity there. Under 'The Play of the Game', do not follow Munzlinger's advice not to castle at a good early opportunity against three strong compounds and two Rooks.
