This question already has an answer here:

Although I love chess, I don't understand how to describe the positions on the board and moves of the chess pieces using numbers and letters. I tried to understand it by myself in hopes to answer an unanswered question (and apparently complex). I couldn't be of any help because I got lost when the question involved chess notation. Can someone explain it to me?

    The correct term is "chess notation". – SmallChess Nov 6 '15 at 5:25
  • If you want to talk abut chess you have to take the time to understand the language. – Tony Ennis Nov 6 '15 at 8:56
