Hi, I bought a 128G expansion for my tablet and I would like to download the Syzygy EGTBs.

How and where is the best place to complete this task?

Thank you,

One possibility is to use torrents from Josh Shriver's site: http://oics.olympuschess.com/tracker/index.php - Have you tried it?

The syzygy tablebases are 150 GB altogether.
May be he can skip the DTZ 6 pieces ...

Hi, I spoke to Albert Silver about this topic and he stated he is going to write an article about it and post it to the CB NEWS page. So, I will wait for the article and go from that.

Thanks,

Sean

Apparently he forgot he'd already written the "article"http://en.chessbase.com/post/syzygy-tab ... t-smallest

"Theoretically, you can track down and download all the Syzygy files on the internet (legally), and then install and configure ChessBase 12/13 or Fritz so that Komodo 8 can use them. Allow me to discourage you from this..."

I'd opt for the torrent download...
