    I have got " Art of the middle game" by Kotov and Keres but i dont know about kind of annotation use in this book. Example:
    1.P-Q4 Kt-KB3
    2.P-QB4 P-KKT3
    3.Kt-QB3 B-Kt2
    ....
    Anyone knows about this kind of annotation?

    descriptive... means
    1.d4 Nf6
    2.c4 g6
    3.Nc3 Bg2

    P-Q4 means pawn to the forth square on their queen file. So instead of a game going
    1.d4 d5
    it would be
    1.P-Q4 P-Q4
    .....make any sense?

    Can you tell me how to convert to normal annotation?

    For a detailed explantion, see the following:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Descriptive_chess_notation

    By the way, that's a very good book. Though wading through unfamiliar notation can be tiresome, in this case, I think you will find it worth the effort.
