Which half of the 960 positions of Fischerandom are used in Chess480? The article does not specify which one of a mirrored pair is played in Chess480.

Both sets of 480 are played for aesthetic reasons.

What distinguishes one set of 480 positions from the other set of 480 positions?

John Lewis wrote on 2005-10-08 UTCExcellent ★★★★★
Because there is no standard numbering system for Fischer Random Chess (Chess960), it would be hard for me to make a rule to explain which are duplicates due to being mirrors. It's likely that any system for generating all 960 positions would probably start mirroring at 480... so 480 and 481 would likely be mirrored positions.
