I bought modern chess strategy (Pachman) but not sure how to read chess notation B x QP, Q-KR5, R-R etc. can anyone explain this notation?
Try the wikipedia article on descriptive notation.
What does "ninjad" mean?
When posting on a forum, you submit a post only to find that someone has posted the same thing only seconds earlier
Thanks Joseph-S I did google ninjad but the search engine changed my question to "ninja" and since I saw "ninjad" didn't consider the possibility of "ninja'd" - so I cursed out the search engine and gave up!
Andrew Soltis praised the descriptive notation as "better" than the algebraic. (Of course if you're used to it all might be clear.)
I often get confused when i.e. the QN is on the kingside and the KN too!
P.S.: ChessBase offers you the possibility to use descriptive notation. It's very useful if you want to copy a game from a book with descriptive notation!
