PARAMOUNT CHESS DATABASE 2.0
Paramount 2.0 is an updated collection of all the games ever published in Informant, from its very first issue, presenting games from 1965 right up to the currently last issue published in 2016 - Informant 130. It is designed to offer you easy access to the entire database – to each individual Informant – to games played by prominent players and world champions – to annotators of games – to openings of games according to the ECO code – to the most popular openings and variations – to the “golden games” as voted by a grandmaster jury, etc.
With a grand total of 115,837 games (71,444 full games and 44,393 game fragments), in numerical terms it is the biggest collection of annotated games on the market. But this is not a numbers game. In contrast to the commercial databases which offer millions of freely accessible games with no analysis, Paramount is a triumph of quality over quantity.
This is the first update to the original product and contains added games from Informants 124-130, retaining the full functionality of the product itself (searches, applied filters for: players, ECO code, volume per volume, most popular openings, annotators, golden games…).
As previously announced, this update is available only as a download version for those users who have previously purchased and registered their copy of the original product. In order to provide you with full support to the product, if you missed to do it earlier - please register your copy here using the provided license key: REGISTER NOW
Although we recommend ChessBase 14 as the preferred software solution for using the Paramount database in a Windows environment, an older version of this same program will serve equally well. Mac users can browse Paramount thanks to the additional PGN database (for Hiarcs, Shredder and any other program). PGN will also be handy when using your favourite program (any PGN viewer) on Android or iOS device.
NO SOFTWARE INSIDE: Paramount does not contain any dedicated software; it is designed to be used by almost every popular free or commercial program on the market.
