    If you don't have CB, I'd recommend http://www.shredderchess.com/online-chess/online-databases/opening-database.html

    as a good database - the reason is that the database is compiled ONLY from GM games.

    What's the best source for annotated games in a particular opening/ defence that has a wide database per opening?

    I have found that the games database at chesstempo.com/game-database.html to be extremely flexible and robust. You can quickly analyze many variations and use any part of the games database for analysis (e.g. GM, > 2400, etc.) I haven't found a better tool on the Net. I use it conjunction with Houdini for analysis of different lines.

    That keeps coming up consistantly.
