Facility to Play Through Games Added to Website


An “entry-level” facility to play through games has been added to this website.  It provides for move-by-move notes to be included, but does not play through any side-lines contained on the notes.  Games are listed in an index page.  To play through a listed game, click on “play” in the last column of the row concerned.


Once the [>] icon has the focus, pressing “enter” (instead of clicking on the icon) suffices to play successive subsequent moves.


A recent game played by the webmaster has been uploaded for illustrative purposes.  Others will be added if/as they come to hand, though people tend to be shy of contributing games.


Anyone wishing to add a game should e-mail to the webmaster the score of the game, in any legible format, including a scanned/photographed score-sheet, along with any notes to be included.
