I played chess many years ago as a young lad. Just an OK player. Now I want to
play again, approaching it as a new chess player. I just played one round of Blitz
here. Wow! Is Blitz playing a good way to learn (re-learn)?
Is there a reference for all the var ...[text shortened]... QID, OTB, FEN, PGN etc...
Great chess site and community. Glad I found it.
ELO, the guy who developed a type of ratings commonly used today. often mistakenly used for fide rating.
QID, queen's indian defense
OTB, over the board ie. physical board vs. a virtual online board.
FEN, a chess position diagram file structure.
PGN, portable game notation, a file structure for a whole game.
