Example: Let us assume you want a list of all German grandmasters. Enter the following data in the search dialog:





Title: Select from the pulldown menu the title GM.

Country: Select GER for Germany.


The program then filters all German grandmasters who are listed in the player encyclopedia. The list can be adapted to your needs by using the column sorting.

Country of Birth: The country where the player was born, which is not necessarily the same country that the player plays for.
