Just so, what do the letters in chess stand for?

Chess notation combines the chess piece moved with the new square it has moved to, on the chess board. Chess notation uses abbreviations for each piece, using capitalized letters. King = K, Queen = Q, Bishop = B, Knight = N, Rook = R, Pawn = no notation.

Similarly, what does N stand for in chess? The cross/plus symbol indeed is a symbol representing "check" in chess notation. The N is the symbol for Knight. (K was already taken for the King.

Also, what does plus mean in chess?

+ = Advantage for white. - = Advantage for black. For example. +1.00 means white has a 1 pawn advantage. -2.50 means black has a 2.5 pawn advantage.
