I do offer my Database in ChessBase format.

I have collected chess games for the last 20 years. In 1986 I started with the program "Chessbase 1" on my Atari ST :-)

The parameters of the database are as follows:

> 300.000 games, no doubles,
one player has ELO 2501 at least,
the other player has ELO 2351 at least,
all games have 17 moves at least,
All games ended 1:0, 1/2 or 0:1.

If you are interested, I would share it with eMule and publish the ed2K-link here.

Everybody, who thinks, he could have games of this qualitity, which I do not have, is asked, to share his database too. So we all could merge our databases to for example one database with 300.000 games, one player ELO 2501 at least, the other player ELO 2401 at least, all "Lazy Grandmaster" Remis deleted (games Remis and less than 20 moves). This would be a big increase of the quality of our "Reference Databases".

I did choose the number of 300.000 games, because Chessbase 9 will only allow to work with a "Reference Database" of at least 300.000 games.

Hi Thomas,

Several times over the years I have started somthing similar - time has always killed my attempts.

I will have a look to see where I got to last - it may be that you can use some of the games I have gathered to add to your database.


P.S. Sorry if it takes a while to get back to you

I would very much like your database.
