Highest quality database

Posted by GilaChess
That's not Chessbase Megabase but the Correspondence database.

It is high quality of course simply for the reason that correspondence take forever to make one move. Each move meticulously and painstakingly analysing all the moves. So naturally, it has commercial value and chessbase markets this as a product.
