    This is just a test to see how things work with PGN and annotation.

    Everyone, please tell me how I can improve my PGN presentations with annotations included. This is just a short demonstration since I am cutting my teeth on this method of presentation.

    I am doing this because I want to present a game of mine on RHP with my comments so that I can see if I am accurate with my analysis, learn to play better from my own analysis, and get information from other players that can help me improve.

    You posted and it worked. Just go for it.
    (I'd not use what other writers say too much- it works better with what you think.)
    Go for it.

    GreenPawn,
    Thanks for replying here. I hope to put up my game in not too much longer. As for my having the sense that you have, I can't count on that when it comes to chess 🙂 Also, thanks for your trying to help me build a PGN and demonstration. On my later demonstration, I want to add time and place and outcome in the pgn.

    As for annotation, I don't want to be too wordy or too little descriptive. If you can give me any other pointers when doing a presentation about my own game, feel free.

    It looks like you've got the basic mechanics worked out for manipulating the PGN editor.

    As for content: have a look at other annotated games here at this forum. You'll soon see who does good annotations and who doesn't. What makes for good reading are your thoughts and plans, and especially positional assessments (such as "White's isolani is less of a burden than Black's weakened king-side..." ) ; whereas plowing through long variations (if ... exd then Bg7, dxc; Nh1 ..... bla bla ) is tedious.

    Moonbus is right.

    If you you must put in a variation more than two moves long and you feel
    it cannot be left out do another PGN.

    Something like:

    {23.KxB fails to Ng4+ see the next PGN for a wonderful finish.}

    Regarding phases and speech in notes.
    Do your own thing. As long as it makes sense and you can understand it.
    If your opponent has a cool RHP name - (Mad Rook).
    Use it - 'Black has lost a Rook I bet that made him Mad!'
    'Mad Rook's Rooks on the 7th were drivinh me Mad.' etc etc.

    Go for it, have fun, nobody is going to hang you - you won't get banned.

    Hey All,
    I made one error in my PGN presentation with the annotation, but not with the PGN moves.

    In annotation I typed that Kasparov played Nc3 on move 21, but I should have typed that move 21 for Kasparov was Nd2.

    This is test #2 which includes more moves within PGN and annotation.
