He started this 3 years ago.  So this time it's probably not the virus 😜

Their only hope now is to take it in an entirely different direction - as in hardcore pornography.

Or make it a Reality show.

Keeping up with the Morphys?

In that trailer they talk about chess moves using modern algebraic notation, I don’t that was the type of chess notation used in Morphy’s time.

Good point. 

If they were going to be flexible with historical accuracy they probably should have avoided including black people so much considering the Morphys literally owned slaves. Considering how much they try to get Gone With The Wind banned I'm pretty sure #blm types would ****ing explode from the trailer alone!

Not even close.

Algebraic would not be invented for many decades later.

To my knowledge, Boris Spassky was the first World Champion to use it regularly.

Hi Lizzda, spamming multiple unrelated topics advertising your YouTube channel isn't acceptable behavior.

Algebraic was actually used by the French for centuries before it became popular.

Descriptive isn't obviously inferior. You could say it's more eloquent in a sense because it only uses pieces to describe the files on the boards. Bobby Fischer was a big fan of it right up to the end, even refusing to allow his book My 60 Memorable Games to be published in algebraic.   

One reason why algebraic reason might have taken prominence is because it's more compact, saving eye movement and perhaps more significantly saving publishers significant amounts of pages. 

In the end algebraic must be better alright, but not so much better that you could follow games vastly more quickly in it, that still depends mainly on your chess strength.
