The Mega: Top players, up close and personal

by ChessBase
12/15/2017 – Computers help to prepare for games, they help to study openings, and they help to analyse complicated tactical positions. But if you want to understand chess it is better to turn to a strong grandmaster with honest and direct answers...you can find some in the ChessBase Mega Database.

Mining Mega

The Mega 2018 contains 7.1 million games, including 71,000 that are annotated. These annotated games are particularly interesting when top players comment their own games. All the world's best players have annotated for the Mega and still do so: World Champions such as Carlsen, Anand, Kramnik, Kasparov or Karpov, and almost all the top players of the last 50 years. Basically, the Mega contains the equivalent of countless books.

It is particularly fascinating if the players reveal what they felt, thought and viewed during their games. These insights into the thought processes of the world's best players are more valuable than endless computer analyses. Here are some examples:

Inspired by Spaniards

Levon Aronian - Hikaru Nakamura (annotated by Hikaru Nakamura)
 

A Polgar power sacrifice

Levan Pantsulaia - Judit Polgar (annotated by Judit Polgar)
