ChessPr0n Database Downloads

CheeseBase SCIDvsPC format download
CheeseBase in PGN format download

ChessPr0n has released a free database of chess games. It is in SCIDvsPC format and it is current as of 5.12.2024. Essentially it is an update of CaissaBase plus games from Mark Crowther's fantastic The Week In Chess plus a bunch of games from On lichess I found the ID's of many of the top players, downloaded their games, and converted their names to their proper names so they would show up in a search.

Additionally I fixed this issue in CaissaBase where around 2018 they had a large update with many top players now having games under two slightly different names. I edited all those games for the players that I found like this to combine that data in any search. As a result you have roughly eight and a half million games of chess free for download.

I host this on my google account to avoid paying for that. It is a zip file that you will need to unzip. Then there are a bunch of files inside. Put them in the same folder that you create on your computer to extract them to and then open the SCID program and then use file > open and navigate to your new database. Play around with it. If you break it it doesn't matter, it was free and you can just download a new copy with no worries while you are learning.
