For the 87,000 games from the engine room of playchess.com and 18,000 games from the Mega 2023 and the Correspondence Database 2022 respectively, an opening average of at least 2300 was taken as a basis. The result is a small special book that allows meaningful statistics about an opening that doesn't equalise 100 per cent but is excellent for countering.
