FIDE setup with additional pieces to offset white's first move advantage - two ferzes + two wazirs against two guards.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Jeremy Good wrote on 2006-05-11 UTCHaven't zillionsed it yet. Good idea. Should do that. Good point about the first one. I know Eric is very distrustful of it and our assumption is that White may very well be able to gain a quick winning position by playing the opening accurately. The impression I'm getting about the second one - hidden - is that it is 'cozy' because the guards, wazirs and ferzes protect points that are traditionally weak in FIDE. Joe Joyce wrote on 2006-05-11 UTCInteresting setups. One thing I noticed playing David Paulowich: 8x8 games with high piece densities get very intense very quickly. (Especially against David.) Did you zillions them? The regular version looks like a problem setup: who wins the opening? The hidden version looks like people could find some interesting play in the opening.
