Huh. All the stats you've posted are really interesting. BDG is one of white's better openings yet so many still consider it unsound? Interesting.

Well you can`t rely a lot on stadistics because the games may also have some mistakes or blunders, or maybe they tranposes into diferent positions ect. but it is good anyway to know the stadistics, sometimes it realy helps
