Amazing Chess Game Notations

  • #1
    Chess variants can be interesting due to interesting graphics, interesting board, or interesting rules.
    But what about notation?
    The games below I think are interesting because of the notation. They are either short or long, or interesting in some other way.
    If anyone has seen an interesting game notation (1 move or a whole game) please share it!happy.png

    Hi Vick

    Don't forget to mention the game played sothat the notation is sound. Naturally, when the FEN notation used to specify the starting position (like in the game finished with a mate in 546 moves) there is no need for such precisions.

    Best regards
