With the internet downtime at least I got to try out the TWIC database collection.

It's for sale in CD form in case you are interested (RM 10).

Total games 1.5 million.

I briefly tested it out by searching for the games of Ismail Ahmad who is a participant here in the Penang Open 2015.

About 202 games from the former World Police Champion which is decent I guess.

It's is in CBV format so you will need Chessbase (any version) to read it.

Look for me in the tournament hall if you are interested.

P/S: the money collected helps in the cost of maintaining the chess websites I am running.
