Rotation Chess

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

Every ten moves, you switch sides! Just how bad a game can you play without losing before you give your opponent the rotten position you created for him? Or perhaps - seen another way - you can find a way of making your opponent's position really good just before you switch? For example: On your tenth move, if you are black, you can leave a piece en prise. It would be interesting to see how well Deep Fritz played this game against Hydra: How long it would last?
