If I recall, this is a collection of publicly available PGN’s that has been around for a while online. It’s had TWIC games added to it, then it’s been de duplicated, cleaned and filtered by rating. It won’t have many engine or online games, but if you’re looking for human OTB play from 1990 onward, it’s pretty good.

Might be useful for me , if I want a free database for "replay training". Also CCRL (maybe other sites too) has many engine vs engine games if you download it from their site.
