Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-01-04  EnglishOpeningc4: Although not many games have been played with it, that is an impressive score for white
Dec-01-04  Dudley: ECO D64 is also the Rubenstein attack, and has over 150 games in the database. At one time, this was one of the most popular QGD variations.
Dec-01-04  PinkPanther: To explain the winning % for white, just look at the players playing the white pieces in these games. Those names speak for themselves.
Dec-01-04  Minor Piece Activity: But what about the players with the black pieces? Lol, you don't mean that Capablanca, Vidmar, Fine, Trifunovic, Bernstein, Bogo, Yates, Spielmann, etc are patzers do you? =D
Dec-02-04  Dudley: The stats for these 15 games do seem out of line, if that's what you mean. In D64 White still won 50% of the games out of a much larger sample size. This must be why people stopped playing the orthodox QGD and switched to the Tartakover or something else entirely. Its a pretty strong opening, imho.
Dec-02-04  PinkPanther: <MPA>
No, but the players of the white pieces (the really good ones) are more numerous than they are for black. Not to mention, Bogo, Capa, and Trifunovic account for the three draws anyway.

  Knight13: Sounds like this opening is very good for White.
Dec-04-04  Dudley: The players involved do not entirely or even mostly account for the imbalanced winning % for White. Most of these games happened in the era when the Queen's Gambit was in top form and it was not yet generallly understood how best to handle it.

  Knight13: It's been decades. Can Black handle it now?

  Knight13: Black only won once. See V Petrov vs Fine, 1935.
Dec-02-14  42eyes: Win for black...6.7% for black?? :0 Isthat a record for the worst...or is there a worse one still?

  plang: <Black only won once. See V Petrov vs Fine, 1935.> Twice - Rubinstein-Yates 1926.

<Win for black...6.7% for black?? :0 Isthat a record for the worst...or is there a worse one still?>

Not sure there are enough games to draw too big a conclusion. Also, a scientific evaluation would involve looking at the relative strengths of who is playing White and Black.

Dec-02-14  42eyes: <plang> Either way I care not, nor for its reputation of being slow or boring. I'm currently working through Matthew Sadler's book Queens Gambit Declined and very much enjoying it. :)
