Boy... I didn't know I was this good with d4!

  • #1

    So I just looked at my own games with Game Explorer for the first time in a long time (because that function is only available for premium members), and I got a bit of a surprise - apparently I'm really good with 1. d4:

    Curiously, I'm also significantly better against d4 than I am against e4:

    But it seems that I need to work on my response to the Nimzo-Larsen Attack and the Bird Opening (!).

    Anyway, I just thought those stats were pretty interesting, and wanted to share them with other people (who probably won't find them as interesting as I do, but anyway). If anyone else wants to share some stats from your own games, feel free to do so.

    You tried almost all openings.

    Only 13 games played with d4, and we don't know the ratings.  Don't celebrate too soon.

    The reason you score so well is because you literally only play the 1100 rated Computer1-Easy to inflate your ratings.

    And you seem to use a3 as a drawing weapon with white.

    Actually, about that... the main reason why I checked my Game Explorer was that I wanted to see my stats against Comp1, but it turns out that games against computers are not included:

    If they were, I wouldn't just have 400-something games with each color, and my stats would be a lot better.

    Actually, that would be 1. c3. See this game as an example:

    Most of my games with c3 are actually against higher-rated opponents. It's just that the opening works so well as a drawing weapon that sometimes I end up winning.

    Indeed I do! Let me show you one more thing. These are my responses to 1. e4:

    Notice anything... conspicuously missing?

    Macer still trolling the noobs.

    Rating inflation is real

    You're very observant... putting those huge eyes to good use, I see. Laughing

    Thank you Macer 😁

    But yeah, the Sicilian just isn't my thing. The main issue is that I don't like to fianchetto my bishops, which is kind of unavoidable if you're playing the Sicilian.
