More than 350,000 new games

Hundreds of thousands of new games played in 2019 were added to the Mega Database 2020. A lot of these games were played by renowned grandmasters and are annotated by well-known ChessBase authors.

Navigating the database is easier than ever: a new menu makes it easy to prepare for your games, to search for tournaments, to find annotated games or to access all the games in the database. One improvement: all World Championship matches and a lot of top tournaments can be directly accessed via the menu — with tables, all games, and texts about the tournaments which give you additional information and insights.

Tournament information, e.g. Tournament text to the recent World Chess Championship 2018, and No. 1 Player Magnus Carlsen vs. No. 2 in the World-rankings Fabiano Caruana. All games from the match with annotations and analysis by top grandmasters offer insights to all the games: 

World Championship 2018

Preparing for your next opponent is easy: with the Mega Database it just takes seconds to find the games of your next opponent! The repertoire overview shows you which lines your opponent likes to play and statistics reveal weaknesses in his repertoire. The reference search allows you to find critical opening positions easily: put the position on the board and click the reference-button. You can filter your search, e.g. to look for annotated games to deepen your understanding.
