Why Do Chess Players Record Their Moves?

Chessplayers are great recorders of their games, and the game records they create are a valuable resource for chess historians. The oldest surviving chess game records date from the 15th century, but in recent years many new collections have been published.

The most important collection of chess games available to us today is the ChessBase Megabase (CBbase), which is a collection of over 2 million games from all over the world. This collection was created through the efforts of thousands of people who sent in copies of their games or sent in their own databases to be included in this project.

In addition to simply recording your games and keeping track of your wins and losses, you may also want to keep track of other statistics about yourself as a player:

How long does it take you to make a move? Do you have any favorite openings or variations? Are there any common mistakes that you make over and over again?

These types of questions will help you get an idea of what kind of player you are and how you can improve your game by analyzing your own weaknesses and strengths.
