This will probably have been answered before so i am sorry beforehand
What is the best opening book to use as a help to analyse openings?For example building a repertoire.
I am intersted in both commercial and free books and I dont care about size as long as it is good

and should i assume that hiarcs is the best of the 3 since it is commercial?

Not necessarily. Commercial opening books are not better than free opening books just because they are commercial. Rising_Star.ctg is a good book because it has up-to-date opening lines. Hiarcs.ctg is a good commercial opening book due to it's reputation of constantly being updated to current opening theory. If you want the best commercial opening book that money can buy, try 1337chess_PRO.ctg.

No, just 3 different theories.
I mean...

Hiarcs.ctg (for chess studying...)
Rising Star.ctg (for engines games...)
My Friends BTB.ctg 33GB (a very huge book with many lines...)

Also, Hiarcs.ctg consists of both grandmaster human games and engine games, while Rising_Star.ctg consists of only engine games. biggrin
