When using Stockfish to annotate some of my games, I will often get the symbols D and +--, which I can't find definitions for. I think that +- means “decisive advantage” for White, and that +-- might mean “very decisive.” As for D next to a move I am at a loss.

  • Maybe it is ++- instead of --+? That would be a move that gives a check and results in a position with evaluation +- – Jester Aug 12 '15 at 21:31

"D" means see diagram. "+/-" means white is better, but not much better.

  • Hmm so what diagram is it referring to if it is just an annotated pgn? And also is +/- the same as +--? I was substantially better at that point like approx +7. – The Nightman Aug 12 '15 at 19:30

    There is software that prints annotated games. the D tells it to produce a diagram for that position. – Jester Aug 12 '15 at 21:32
  • D in human written forms can mean also a draw offer – user1708042 Aug 14 '15 at 9:03

    @TheNightman In order, +-- +- +/- += indicate progressively smaller advantages for White. – D M Sep 15 at 17:27
