Chess Game Scores (from other events)


  • Thanks to IM John Donaldson and others as noted for the older games.

File Format Notes:

  • CBV type files are Chessbase archive databases. They can be opened with Fritz, ChessBase, ChessBase Light, ChessBase Reader, and Chess Assistant. If you don't have one of these chess programs, you can go to and download the free ChessBase Light.

  • PGN (Portable Game Notation) type files can be opened with almost any chess program, and also any text editor such as MS-Word or Notepad.

  • We've added MyChessViewer 2.2 from, which allows you to view games in the PGN files directly in your browser. (Click on the corresponding .htm file in the MyChessViewer column to open the viewer.) Note: You will likely need to add to your Java security exceptions list (in configure Java) to allow MyChessViewer to run.
