How popular is this variant here ?
some ways of measurement/interesting :
What % of games are 960 games ?
How often do you play chess 960 ?
Ratings distribution in the 960 variant, what does this look like
around 1.5%, from a somewhat unreliable source http://en.lichess.org/games/search
I like 960 and should play more but I am mostly a creature of habit and low effort which means I play 1 min alot :)
flugsio is probably right. Not more than 2% of all games in any case. That should be about 1000 games per day. Or one game in a little more than a minute.
How often do I play it? A few times a week.
I know that it's fairly easy to get a game in 960, I rarely have to wait more than a minute for someone to join.
