    401. You set up the board with Queens on opposite colors.

    A friend of mine who had not played serious chess in years played his first tournament in the under 1200 section and promptly set his board up that way. His opponent was a young kid who probably was playing his first tourny and didnt see the mistake. It was only when trying to go over his game afterwords, did we realize the mistake...  either someone had terrible chess notation skills or....... lol.

    405. You need descriptive notation because you think algebraic notation doesn't give enough information.

    (Meaning that you need to be told the starting square for a move)
