Looking for sites to download master level games --- My current database that I have built is about 400,000 strong (2437 avg ELO) --- i'm looking for more games of master level --- i'm looking for Free Pgn downloads, i don't want to have to be a premium member like on chessgames
any suggestions for sites to go for them?
Personally, I review most of my master level games from books because then they are annotated. And that makes me happy.
don't i need a premium account on chessgames, in order to download their games in mass?
www.365chess.com is a free site with a nice opening explorer and a large data base.
chessgames.com has a great database; free pgns. Problem is you have to download them one at a time unless you're a member, not sure what that takes though.
The Week in Chess has all the latest games. PGN Mentor has older games organized by player, opening or event. Lars Balzar has a site with links to many other sites with downloadable games.
Riga(Tal) -- I have just about all the games in PGN mentor --- this is a site i've visited before to get alot of games --- i'll have to check out the other two
Free mega databases: Jose, Icofy Base, ChessDB, Million Base 1.74 and Robert Hyatt's Enormous.zip. Norm Pollock also has a fair number of pgn archives.
thanks riga, my database is now around 2 million --- owe you one
Svetozar Gligoric annotates a few in his book Shall We Play Fischerandom Chess? You might want to ask kokino as well, because he seems to know a lot about the literature on 960.
