What does Tactics Trainer put in Analysis & Source PGN file?

    I don't understand comments or special notation like {12:-Mat08} or {12:+0.01} at the begining of variations. Looks like position evaluation but is it after variation completed or at the begining?

    And what does it means $19 or $10 at the end of variation?

    Probably I don't understand PGN notation well but in PGN Specification http://www.very-best.de/pgn-spec.htm I just found that these are Numeric Annotation Glyph but without specification of numbers.

    Where I can find description how to make and understand PGN notation?

    Thanks for an answer in advance,

    Is it possible to download all the puzzles you already did as a pgn file? Maybe for diamond members Wink?

    I just download puzzles and Tactic Trainer solutions I'm interested in solution variations (basically, when I make mistake I want to analyze it... Smile).

    I use ChessPad free software (www.wmlsoftware.com) and it is easy to make may own PGN database with marks and notations. I just copy PGN of puzzle I am interested and paste in my PGN file (edited in standard Notepad).

    I want to understand what kind of comments, marks and variations I can make in my personal PGN database...

    How it is calculated 0.25 pawns of advance? As far as I know quarter-pawns still are not implemented in chess game... Wink

    0.25 means white is considered to be ahead by a quarter of a pawn, which means a slight positional advantage.  -1.25 means black is ahead by one and a quarter pawns.  That could be either a pawn and a slight positional advantage as well or a significant positional advantage.

    #3 means mate in three.
