Hi,

I am interested in downloading the current best free wide opening book, for home studying some opening lines.

Could you give me some advice (links welcome)?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

                Patricio.

I would avoid most books you'll see for download, those are usually competitive books specifically tuned for engine matches, and may not be very sound in actual opening theory. I think you would be better off with the standard opening books that come packaged with Fritz or Shredder, etc... Those are all commercial, you need to purchase the software to get those books. One great free option (in Chessbase format) is Hiarcs 12.1.

Patricio,

There is also a very good online openings training utility that access over 3 million games. As you click on each move in the list it displays possible replies in that line listing for each one the number of games where that move was played, the white/black win % and a chart showing how successful each move was. Also at each position it gives a  link to download games for that particular position in the line:

I know this is what large opening databases also provide when you use databse programs like Chessbase, but thought this may be of interest for anyone that doesn't want to invest in or download those.
