Is there a simple and quick way of finding the game or do I need to search through all the previous columns using the opening code as the only reference?

You should download all the games from the PGN Archive (or the one stop download if you have access to all 12 sections) and put them in one reference database. Then it only takes an instant to see these references if you have ChessBase.

When playing through games in one of the monthly up-dates the author often quotes games from previous columns with the comment "see archives".

Is there a simple and quick way of finding the game or do I need to search through all the previous columns using the opening code as the only reference?

I've just uploaded the 2018 games download to Gold Plus, and updated the other downloads so they are now all up-to-date and contain all the games so far (up till and including the December 2018 updates)
This last year the player with the most ChessPub annotated games was ...
World Championship challenger Fabiano Caruana, followed by Shakhriyar Mamedyarov and then the World Champion Magnus Carlsen,

I've just uploaded the 2017 games download to Gold Plus, and updated the other downloads - I was interested to see that the player with the most ChessPub annotated games in 2017, and by far, was ... Maxime Vachier Lagrave.
Please let me know if there are any problems.  Smiley

so in say Chessbase you would go to the game:

White: Tarrasch 3...Be7 4.Ngf3
Black: Intro

which is a ChessPub Guide.

Would the free 'ChessBase Reader 2013' work - I have CB12 here but I assume the free Reader would work? If it did that might help user without the paid Chessbase?


Yes, the free CB reader (or previous CB Light) works just fine, as do all the CB engines (Fritz, say).

P.S. Glenn Flear suggested Chess Publishing a while back, it just took me a while to subscribe, my son is already getting a lot out of it.


Good! Smiley

It depends on whether they are 'new style' (updated regularly) or 'old style' (not). We like them but they haven't proved particularly popular - probably because you need Windows and ChessBase to use them. Sad
I find using the ChessPub Guides + games easier than using the PDF files + games myself.


Hi Tony,

So you miss out the pdf completely? Just to make sure I am understanding, so in say Chessbase you would go to the game:

White: Tarrasch 3...Be7 4.Ngf3
Black: Intro

which is a ChessPub Guide.

Would the free 'ChessBase Reader 2013' work - I have CB12 here but I assume the free Reader would work? If it did that might help user without the paid Chessbase?

if you use the one stop download area you miss about 10% of the commented games?


The one-stop download doesn't include the ChessPub Guides, which are used to make the PDF files, just the annotated games.


Thanks for explaining the gap - my son tends to flick between the pdf and the 'game' in Chessbase as he finds that most comfortable*. So it's a good thing I went to the game archives.

i.e. He was looking at the French (Tarrasch) eBook and we discovered if you searched for surname Tarrash in Chessbase all the games were there.

* I assume this makes sense

P.S. It would seem that the playable eBooks would be the easiest to use but these don't appear to always be updated i.e. Tarrash playable eBook was last updated 16th September 2004?
