Rare Birds 2015-16

On this blog 'Rare Birds' are crossboard (OTB) chess960 tournaments, as in Rare Birds 2014 (August 2014). In this post I'll add three that are definitely worth a mention, although there are undoubtedly more. I might come back to one or more of these in a future post.

The Chess960 Jungle reported on another significant event from 2015.

When chess960 is played by the elite, it usually has little more than exhibition status in a traditional (SP518) chess event.

That last event merits a deeper look.
