Thanks for the angle. Right, good Chessbase, everyone's favourite orthochess site, is covering FRC, and we will too.  Here also is what Mig Greengard said about the German event before and after Hikaru Nakamura's final win today for chess960 2009 title:

''If Nakamura wins there's probably some horribly strained element of seredenpity to be made about a US champion becoming the world champion in a chess variant spawned by the last US world champion.''  Greengard expresses interesting reservations about FRC above. They would more or less apply to all of Pre-Chess and Deployment, Slide-Shuffle and Capablanca Random Chess

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
