Can someone please help me with chess notation. It doesn'y always make sense to me. I recently visited a website that had the following notation on it: -
This is a classic and runs as follows. 1. e4 e5, 2. Nf3 Nc6, 3. Bc4 Nf6, 4. Ng5 d5, 5. ed NxP?!, 6. Nxf7!? KxN, 7. Qf3+ Ke6, 8. Nc3. The position is unclear after 8. ... Nb4. However, white can improve with the line 6. d4 ed, 7. 0-0 when he threatens 8. Nxf7 and is probably winning.
Move 5 states 'ed'. WHat does this mean? I tried to take it as meaning a piece is moved from row e to row d. Neither the king or the pawn can do this so where am I going wrong?
