    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! Laughing

    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! Wink
