How can I find all games played by 2 specific players?

For example: Nigel Short and Magnus Carlsen.

Is there some official FIDE database or something like that?

I'd like an easy way to see things like:

  1. Their overall score against each other
  2. A list of the games that make up this score, each with a link to the PGN of the game, showing date and tournament location etc
  3. Most recent game played

Try http://www.chessgames.com. Just write "Short" and "Carlsen" in the search box.



Response to @Ywapom, Chessgames is quite good for top chess players like Carlsen. However, it can be incomplete for non top players. I'd suggest the expensive Mega Chessbase database.

  • chessgames.com is just one incomplete source of many. You won't necessarily find all their games there.

  • Agreed that it is a decent source for top players, also that the mega chessbase db is probably the most complete. However maybe chessgames.com won't have a game of Carlsen vs. Short when Carlsen was a lower rated kid.
