Embarrassment of Riches

Holy Game Collection, Batman: found this today and thought I would share.

Update: In the comment section Hank has kindly provided a link to another amazing collection of “database books” at gambitchess.com.

    That website is awesome!

    I had purchased the Pandolfini endgame book so it is nice to have it is a pgn for endgame practice!

    I also like that he encourages people to buy the book and use the pgn’s as supplements!

      Yeah, that’s the spirit. I’ve downloaded the Pandolfini database,too, and will peruse it in addition to Silman.

      How about some isolani games soon? ;)

    That site has a lot more stuff than this, but in order to access the non-free part of their collection you have to contribute a PGN for a book they don’t already have.

    Hi ChunkyRook,

    Thanks for sharing that website. :)

    Btw, tommyg, wrt Pandolfini’s endgame book, I’ve heard there are inaccuracies/errors in that book so be careful.

    I don’t have Chessbase, so this won’t help me.

      That was my first reaction, too. Fortunately, there’s ChessBase Light. Gives you access to all the games and it’s completely free. Download at the Chessbase website.

    I should have given the direct link to the “free” section that other site before. It has about 4 times as much stuff as Ossimitz, all in PGN format (over 300 PGNs). I love both sites – very helpful.
