Databases I have searched around for a thread on favorite/best chess databases and have not found one. I
am interested in getting one but am at a loss for what to look for and which databases are
considered "best".

Thanks for the tips...

I know Chess Base, Bookup, and I think Chess Assistant have free versions.
Try them, decide, and if they don't do enough, then think about buying one.
I use Chess Base Light, it's enough for me.

deadofknight . . . .... Definately best is a USED d-Base from some retiring GM or ICCM . . . complete with notes and evaluations.
.....I just got ChessBase several months ago (from a generous gift-giver) and like it but still working at learning it. Just not enough time, but hope to do more with that in the next couple months.
.....The one I started with was called KnightStalker, which I liked a lot for the simplicity of it. So it was great to start with. Of course C/B can do so much more. I would offer you my K/S to try but it is in the 386 with the broken disc-drive. And the original disc is gone. (I think maybe B*** did it ! :)

database Puedes buscar en google SCID, es gratis y lo instalas en tu computadora.
Despues puedes bajar twic chess son bases semanales y puedes construir tu propia base, incluso en ella puedes incluir tus propios juegos.
So long.
