I find the database mostly useless. So many lines from human games are missing. And often at the top is some weird move that's nothing special or plain wrong.

But you can insert the missing lines, and feed it the lines that you have it best so it becomes more correct, and perhaps it'll show at the top some move you haven't considered in analysis.

There are just too many lines missing. I get more benefit by using online chessbase. I see the percentages humans have actually scored in games with engine evals, though blitz and rapid games nowadays are slightly distorting the results.
