Lichess Elite Database

1,466 members

Hi all, I created the Lichess Elite Database which is a collection of lichess games, published each month - get it on

I filtered all (standard) games from lichess to only keep games by players rated 2400+ against players rated 2200+, excluding bullet games.

I believe that the database might be useful for players who want to be up to date on the latest theoretical novelties as strong players test their discoveries online. Another potential use for this database is to see how strong opponents would face your openings in practice.

This team is primarily to let you know whenever I publish the latest update: I will message you once a month to let you know about it.
