[flulmebe] Retirement to Chess960

There seem to be very few chess players declaring they are done with orthodox chess and retiring to only play Chess960 because they are tired of memorizing openings or losing straight out of the opening.  This seems contrary to what Fischer (implicitly) predicted, motivating him to invent FRC.

Perhaps among all the efforts needed to get or stay strong at chess (at any level), opening preparation remains a relatively minor proportion of the work.
