When displaying results of a game using chessboard, a mysterious Z shows up. In the following code, I would like to display the result as "1-0", but it shows up as "Z1-0."

How can I avoid this?

\mainline{1. e4 1-0}

    You are actually not using chessboard. \showboard is a command from skak. The chessboard command to show a board is \chessboard. Commented Apr 25, 2011 at 9:31

Put the result outside of the \mainline, say \mainline{1. e4} \textbf{[1-0]}. I think the chessboard has no support for typesetting results.

  • that was very easy
