Darn. Everyone apparently is having an easy go at the hard one and I'm just not there. I think I see:
possibly salty
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The four horsemen of the apocalypse. 'four' doesn't seem to fit anywhere. 'Revelation' and 'armaggedon' fit along with 'battle' and 'riders', but I just can't seem to get the correct phrase.

That's the path I went down first to no avail - reset.

it looks like you have your "L" wrong - and you don't have to anagram

Salty!

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I think I have all the notations (first column). I then converted them to numbers (column 2) and tried adding them together, wrapping when necessary (column 3) and tried adding the piece and column info only (column 4):
Na6 14-1-6 21 15-6
Qd5 17-4-5 26 21-5
Kc2 11-3-2 16 14-2
Bh3 2-8-3 13 10-3

Bb4 2-2-4 8 4-4
Qf4 17-6-4 27 23-4
Ke1 11-5-1 17 16-1
Rg1 18-7-1 26 25-1

Column 3 net of letters: uzpmhaqz
Anagrams to nothing useful.

Column 4 net of letters: ofuelbjcddpaya
Can't get it to anagram to anything meaningful.


So yeah...I'm stuck.

It's actually much simpler than that.

Rank and file are important here.
Place the numbers 1-8 going up the left side then just TANGA what you see

Ugh...I STILL get nothing.

Frustrated Salt:
Spoiler (click to reveal)

N6
Q5
K2
B3
B4
Q4
K1
R1

That nets me: 14-6 17-5 11-2 2-3 2-4 17-4 11-1 18-1
I add them together to get: 20 22 13 5 6 21 12 19 or tvmefuls, which anagrams to nothing.


EDIT:
Finally got it. My knowledge of notation clearly hurt me on this one.

Hard:

SALTY

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Hmmm...though I had this one easy, but apparently not.
Tried taking the abbreviations of the states, turning them backwards, and anagramming the letters (all the second letters of the abbreviations). Got Ankled, which was wrong. I then tried taking the last letter of them all, but got nothing anagramming. I must be missing something simple, but not sure what.

You started out right. Don't anagram and don't limit yourself.

That did it. Might've helped if I'd have heard of him.
