ICC Help: history
Your last 20 completed games are shown in your history. Type "history" to see a list of them. You can then "examine", "mailstored" or "smoves" any of those games. Read the help files for each of those commands.
Adjourned games (for example, when your opponent disconnects) are not shown in your history. They are shown in your "stored" list.
Here is an explanation of what you see in your history list: An example line from 'history arcsin' command is:
The number on the left (67) is an index into your history list, in the range 0-99. It can be used to reference that game for commands like "examine" or "sposition", e.g. "examine arcsin 67".
"+" is the result of the game for you. Possible values are: 'a' for aborted, '+' for win, '-' for loss, '=' for draw
"1956" is your rating after the game is finished. Ratings of unrated or aborted games that were adjourned and completed later are the ratings from when the game was adjourned, and are NOT current. They are not used in the calculations for the next game.
"B" is the color you played (Black).
"2132 gnusurf" is your opponent's rating after the game, and username.
"bu" means the game was blitz and unrated. That first character could be:
or a wild number.
r = rated, u = unrated
"2 12" time control: initial time in minutes, increment in seconds.
"B01" is the Encyclopedia of Chess Openings (ECO) code for the game's opening.
The "End" column is how the game ended. Possible values are:
The date and time are when the game began (not when it finished). So adjourned games that are resumed and finished will appear out-of-order in the time list.
