    I just brought ''how to improve your chess'' by horowitz and reinfeld and it's in discriptive notation and was wandering where a good place would be to recreate the games in the book so there easier to follow.

    Just become more familiar with descriptive notation, it's really not very difficult.

    lol,i like your sense of humor the link im sorry to say didn't help a great deal.I might have worded my question wrongly i understand descriptive notation but was looking for a place where i can recreate and store games from the book so i am able to play them over and follow the notes effectively anything would help and be appreciated.

    except for this link : http://www.better-english.com/easier/theyre.htm

    Sometimes someone on chessgames.com will create a collection of all the games in a book so that people can go through them easily, but I couldn't find this particular one.

    I suppose you could just create PGNs of the games yourself, using WinBoard or something similar. Some of the games might be on chessgames.com, so it would be worth searching for them they're first.

    Beautiful! I love it! Aside from the mistake in grammar, did you notice the spelling mistakes too?

    It has all the answers. Chessmaster 11 is the newest one I think. I have Chessmaster 10 though, but it's still a great program. Just don't use it to cheat

    NO. don't ever use chessmaster for analysing or going over games. it's torture.
