Boggled by Chess Databases?
This ChessCentral article will give you the basic information you need to understand databases, copying games, and distributing chess lessons in database form. There is a particular skill set which chess instructors ought to have when working in the electronic medium. Nobody is expecting you to become a chess computer guru, but you do require a bit of knowledge to be able to best utilize these electronic tools. We’ll keep this discussion as painless and non-technical as we can; if you’d like additional specific details, please consult your ChessBase documentation (such as the context-sensitive Help file).
A chess database is simply a collection of games. A database might contain literally millions of games or it might simply be a half-dozen games which your student should review — the basic concept of a “database” remains the same either way.
