Notes

About 6% of the games include Stockfish analysis evaluations: [%eval 2.35] (235 centipawn advantage), [%eval #-4] (getting mated in 4), always from White's point of view.

In files with ✔ Clock, real-time games include clock states: [%clk 0:01:00].

The WhiteElo and BlackElo tags contain Glicko2 ratings.

The Round and Date tags are omitted (see UTCDate & UTCTime instead).

Variant games have a Variant tag, e.g., [Variant "Antichess"].

Known issues

Extract bz2 files

Unix: pbzip2 -d filename.pgn.bz2 (faster than bunzip2)
Windows: use 7zip

Open PGN files

Traditional PGN databases, like SCID or ChessBase, fail to open large PGN files. Until they fix it, you can split the PGN files, or use programmatic APIs such as python-chess or Scoutfish.
