Opening Line Info for Making PGN Files and Clickable Boards

Chicken_Monster

What is a good resource for opening line info where I can access PGN files or the data to make them? iiChess has some good stuff for a few openings. There is Wikipedia for individual lines. But what if I want to run through possible scenarios for paying 1.d4 or 1...e5 etc. with either a clickable board or potential lines? I might want a file that branches out, so that White may have four reasonable options on move 3, and as Black the file will contain plausible responses to each of those four options....or this could all be broken up into separate files.

You can find them.

I remember your post about C-K, London, Slav, etc. My thoughts when you were looking for static vs the videos was to make your own pgns from videos. I do it with videos and books.

I might have to do that. Wikipedia seems pretty good too, actually. There must be lots floating around there already made though, either free or for purchase.

Is there a particular person or company you especially like that makes opening videos? I don't want garbage.

Not GM level or anything, but I like the Caro-Kann videos from HangingPawns (he has plenty of others)

Here's one on English symmetrical move orders by Max Illingworth:

@PawnstormPossie That's the type of thing I'm looking for. I'd like to find it for other openings as well. Also, I wish he also elaborated on 1...c6 going into a Slav type of setup etc. Where did you find that, exactly?

I don't really remember. Probably on this site or chesspublishing

Try looking for "Caro-Kann defensive system"

I'm not sure if I'm going to do the CK or not. I might. Was thinking of 1.d4 as White and 1...e5 to 1...e4 and 1...d5 to 1.d4. Maybe 1....c6 to 1.Nf3. Do you know if Max Illingworth does this for other openings?

PawnstormPossie

I know for a fact he use to on chesspublishing. Not sure if he still does now.

I haven't subscribed to it for a couple of years now. If you do, you get access to pgns from several GMs.

I guess it's still setup that way.
