I have consulted your Laws of Chess page
and I could not find an answer to a question.
When should I annotate my move on the score sheet, before making the
move or, am I allowed to do it on my opponent’s time?
Most players do it after making a
move and pressing down their own side clock button.
When white has the move, white
player moves his piece, pushes his clock button, and
subsequently writes down this move on his score sheet.
Afterwards, his opponent must also record such white move on his
Next, the above procedure is repeated: black player moves his
piece, pushes his clock button, and subsequently writes down
this move on his score sheet. Afterwards, his opponent must also
record such black move on his own sheet.
Although it is possible to annotate first, move the piece, and
then push the clock button, it is more convenient and logic to
make it the way mentioned before to save time by making the
entry in the opponent’s time.
