DutchBaseArchive of Dutch chess games in PGN format, for free download
The aim of DutchBase is to be a comprehensive database of games played in important chess events in The Netherlands.
The idea for a Website like this comes from John Saunders, who started his BritBase in 1997. Several other national chess databases can now be found on the Web, and Holland, having played an important role in the chess world, could not stay behind.
DutchBase strives for quality rather than quantity. All the games in the files on this site have been checked, and the player names are given with as much detail as possible. For players from parts of the world with other alphabets, the standard transcription has been used.
All files are in PGN-format. At the last update of 28.8.2002, there are 611 files (51.216 games including some blanks) that can be downloaded.
Behind every event you will find two numbers: a number in black for the games played in that event, and a number in red for the games missing in the gamefile. Any help in obtaining these games would be greatly appreciated. All suggestions and comments are welcome.
