Hikaru Nakamura, current U.S. champion, has published a book called Bullet Chess, about one minute chess, which contains a discussion of "pre-moves" - when to make them! It occurred to me that this phenomenon of pre-moves makes chess on ICC temporal variant chess.

As winner of the 2008 Finet Chess 960 Open in Mainz, he is also considered current Chess960 champion.
