Nov-10-15  ndg2: I wouldn't say the open ruy lopez is uncommon

  heuristic: <the open ruy lopez is uncommon> data mining this page for chess analytics :
Opening Explorer

for reasons unclear to me, opening explorer is usually inconsistent in the presented data. no matter:

1) summaries
opening/games = 1536/24031 = 6%
2) next moves
nxe4/all = 2921/(17147+2939+2921+604+519+...) = 12%

- open ruy means more than C80
- uncommon (& rare) have statistically different meanings

your comment did not provide enough data for me to infer.
