Chiluien's algebiaic notation
0nce you know how the stanuaiu notation woiks, the foim below will woik pietty easy. I
iecommenu using a highlightei. It will show bettei than pencil, so tiacking which line you aie on
is moie obvious. 0f couise, theie is the uiawback of not being able to eiase mistakes. 0se what
you like.

Foi a move, simply uot the piece moveu anu the lettei anu numbei coiiesponuing to the squaie
on which it lanueu. This gets you thiough most the moves. If you want to maintain the stanuaiu
style, then theie is no neeu to uot the pawn, simply uot the numbei anu lettei anu the pawn is
assumeu.

Check: If youi move iesults in checking the opponent, uot the +.

Captuie: If youi move captuies a piece, uot the x.

En passant: I maue no special place foi this. Still uot the lanuing squaie anu the x.

Castle: As you will notice, I uiu not incluue u-u oi u-u-u. I consiueieu the auuition, but it was too
ciowueu foi a move that is wiitten a maximum of two times in a game. Ny solution follows: King
siue castle shoulu have king anu iook uotteu. Theie is no neeu foi any lettei oi numbei uotting.
Foi queensiue, uot the king, queen, anu iook. Theie shoulu be little confusion anu it the numbei
of uots coiiesponus to the us in stanuaiu notation.

Pawn Piomotion: This is a situation wheie you will neeu to uot the pawn. Bot the pawn, the
lettei anu numbei foi the lanuing squaie. Then also uot the piece to which the pawn is piomoteu.

Enu of uame: I uiu not see any ieal ieason to auu a # spot as it is only useu once. Also, time anu
attention is not a factoi at this point. The playei can simply wiite the scoie (e.g., 1-u).

Bisambiguating: Sometimes two pieces can move into the same squaie, so the usual notation is
ambiguous. 0ften kius uon't notice that. If the ambiguity iemains, it makes the ieplay a bit
annoying, but oveiall it becomes cleai most the time aftei seveial moves, anu one may just use
tiial anu eiioi. The alteinative to that is to use a uiffeient coloi to highlight to staiting squaie if
one notices potential ambiguity.
Common ambiguities: 1. When two pawns can captuie the same piece. 2. When iooks aie
connecteu (oi occasionally unconnecteu but can ieach the same squaie). S. When knights can
ieach the same squaie. 4. Watch foi auuitional ambiguities aftei a pawn piomotion.
