In Professional blitz chess games how do the GM's get their games recorded when they dont have time to write down their moves?
DGT XL (chess clock) has a wire that is connected to the chess board, and is connected to the computer and when they make a move it will show on the computer what move they made. (Thats how they do it i believe)
Or in the olden days (I think) they had a person to look at the game and record it by hand.
Sometimes, they play on (electronic sensor-equipped) chessboards that automatically record the moves that are made (for example, DGT boards).
Sometimes, a spectator may be able to write fast enough to keep score.
Sometimes, the GMs may just remember their game by head, so they can write it down later if they want to.
Sometimes, the game may even have been recorded on video.
Often, their blitz games may just remain unrecorded.
Yeah i ment the DGT Boards in my example.
