Yet another good guide to create opening chess book

Maverick is the first chess engine I’ve written which can use its own opening book.  I decided at an early stage Maverick would read Polyglot opening books.  It makes so much sense.  Polyglot seems to be a great tool create opening books and its format seems to be emerging as the de-facto opening book standard.

So now I need to actually create an opening book.  I did some research on the internet and it really is quite straightforward. Here are the steps I took:


  1.    There are some really good free tools which you’ll need to download:

    1. Polyglot (the program which will generate the book)
    2. SCID the freeware PGN database tool
    3. PGN-Extract which cleans PGN files
    4. Opening Book Batch file and Filter I created

  2. You will also need a database of high quality game.  I used Ed Schroeder’s Million Base. Make sure your database is in PGN format.
