The database loads an overview of the games. A double click loads a game. Using the Players tab allows you to sort the games for frequency. That enables you to take a closer look at players like Magnus Carlsen, Sergei Zhigalko and Michal Krasenkow (experts with the black pieces) or Shirov and Kramnik (experts with both colours).
The games can either be played through or else further investigated with an engine or a powerbook.
