    i'm wondering if anyone knows what is meant by an "annotaded" game , it's a feature here at RHP that nobody ever uses? or where is this feature explained, if you might know? thanks!

    I assume you're referring to the typo and you know what annotated games are.
    In any case, the post should be on the help forum

    A 2199 player doesn't know what annotated games are for.

    Go to menu > Community > Annotated Games, and look them over. Some players write notes about games they have played and publish them there. If you're a 2100+ player, you probably won't learn anything as most of the players who publish annotations are below that strength.

    Read the thread title. Not your typo; Jack Sprat's.

    yes, so i found the annotaded games, with annotated moves indicated in each game??? but still then what is an annotated move? annotated, what for?

    Have you never read a chess book in which the author (or someone else) does not simply record the moves of some game, but adds commentary, explaining the strategy behind the moves? Or alternative moves which would have won/lost/drawn instead. Those are annotations. What for? For others to read, enjoy, and learn from.

    Some RHP players also annotate their games. What for? To show off how clever they are, I suppose.
