Books.zip (2x .bin books [varied+performance.bin] By Heinz van Saanen - 5.9 MB)

Info:
1) BOOK DATA/GENERAL

Everything was done to ensure underlying db-quality. Users not interested in
details may happily skip the whole rest.

For others more interested some details. E.g. things validated for the basic
data base used for both varied/performance:

* human-human games only
* min. age for players: 16 years. So no kid/methusalem games
* max. age for players: 56 years. So no kid/methusalem games
* min. games per player: 4. So no possibly weak validated games
* min. ply: 30
* no * games
* no blind/blitz/rapid/simul games
* no twin games at all. Really meant so not only in Scid-terms

These conditions are really harsh - and lead to a most clean db missing some
more 100.000's games which are quite likely correct. But as download-size matters
too, this strategy seems a senseful compromise between size/quality. And quality
comes first...
