Nakamura - Aronian Video

Here's a short video clip related to the recent Nakamura - Aronian match in St.Louis. Featuring the two match protagonists, it's more about Fischer than about chess960, but who's complaining?

At one point Aronian says,

The objective of [chess960] is the same as in the game of chess, although it's trickier because, unlike chess, your pieces are not really coming fast into the game. You can't just use your pattern recognition and say, 'Oh, this is good for me', because the pieces are randomly placed.
