What is a CBV file?

File created by ChessBase, a program used for reviewing played chess games, often historical matches between players such as Garry Kasparov, Anatoly Karpov, and Bobby Fischer; stores chess moves played and can save many different games in the same file.

More Information

When you create a ChessBase database, the program saves a .CBH file with several other supporting files by default. However, you can combine all these files into a single archive in a CBV file. This is useful when copying and sharing chess databases.
