I am wondering, we have big chess and other chess variants, would there be a lot of interest in having a chess 960 world championship and tournaments?

I would like to play in a chess960 championship.

I am surprised we do not have a chess960 format of some sort considering engines can play it.

We have chess960 tournaments... A new one starts about every 2 to 3 months, I'm not sure if it would make sense to have a championship though.

Maybe the Chess960 tournaments hiding in the special tournaments section is a problem.

And that they are not divided by rating, standard and rapid time controls etc is also an issue.
With chess960, all the top chess engines can be used.

Only a few rated games (taking quite a lot thinking time) was a choice from the start and I believe that to multiply it would only share the number of players involved.

Thibault: I do not understand your comment? As in, I genuinely do not understand it.

Sorry, I meant: A few rated games (correspondence chess, Go & big chess) was a choice from the start...
