    Default fine

    Hi.
    Does a 'fine' chess move mean a move that is ''very good and admirable'?

    Thhanks in advance

    As an NES but not a teacher or chess player, that is how I would interpret it.

    PS It's OK to drop one of the "h's" in "Thhanks"!

    I think the chess-players' shorthand for 'a fine move' is '!'.
