    Can somebody tell me what in the world is a FEN value and is there something beneficial that I can learn from all those letters and numbers printed under it?

    There used to be a help question dealing with this but it seems to
    have disspeared!! The FEN value is just the standard notation for
    recording a chess position. I'll find the FAQ question and put it back
    up (it describes what all the letters and numbers mean).
