Shakhriyar Mamedyarov: It’s much better to play Fischer Random Chess

The Azerbaijani grandmaster Shakhriyar Mamedyarov yesterday scored 3/3 at the Saint Louis 9LX Chess to join Alireza Firouzja on the top of the rankings. In the post-games interview, Mamedyarov said that he enjoys Fischer Random: “Normally in classical chess, I just try to play interesting chess and I try to get an interesting position from the opening, but now is from first moves interesting position. It’s much better to play this chess (Fischer Random)!“. However, he added that he thinks it won’t be good for the top players to play many tournaments with Fischer Random Chess: “I don’t think it will be very good to play many tournaments with this 960 chess, because in our days is not easy to play normal chess“. Before analyzing the game against Nepo, where he promoted Knight to win the game in style, Mamedyarov admitted he is not the master of Chess 960 rules and that sometimes he is not sure how to do castle.
