Rough guide to notation:

The first (capital) letter is the piece moved: (R)ook, k(N)ight, (B)ishop, (Q)ueen, (K)ing. If there's no first letter that means a pawn.

The letter/number pair refers to the destination square, so Ne6 means "knight to e6," c5 means "pawn to c5"

An x means a capture, so dxc4 would be pawn (on d file) takes at c4, and Bxc7 would be bishop takes c7

A "+" is a check, "#" is checkmate, "=Q" is pawn promotion to a queen, and O-O and O-O-O are castling

To avoid eternal games, if we go five full moves with no pawn moves or captures, with 6 or fewer pieces on the board, the bot will query an endgame tablebase and adjudicate draws if one has become inevitable. github.com/niklasf/lila-tableb

Well that was a good first game! Next game (in about 40 minutes) the computer will be a little bit easier, and we'll work to adjudicate clearly drawn games rather than have them drag on for 50+ moves or until we blunder.

Also, from now on all completed games will be available in a pgn archive at doc.petras.space/public/archiv

I tend to use pychess or chessx to analyse games, but you can also look at them online, e.g. at chess.com/analysis
