Is player annotation of value?
I'm not sure how many games are annotated by the players. For some, that have thirty or forty games in progress, it may prove to be a little tedious. I try to play stronger players by choice and try improve my game. Maybe I'll only have four or five games in progress. Still, they are all annotated. If I win, happy day; however, if I lose I can use my annotations to track mistakes. Where did the tide turn? What move would have been better? By back tracking on a board I keep next to my computer I can try to pinpoint the error and find an alternate move that may have better. Then the fun begins by playing both sides with zeal and against the other. I'm I adrift in my own mind? Does anyone else in our chess community use this method?
