Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-04  EnglishOpeningc4: QGDORA is a wonderful opening and has one of the most land slide win % on the site
Jan-18-06  Endgame: I love playing this opening whenever I can. It does have a huge win percentage here in this database, but unfortunately the sample size is too small as there isn't even 200 games with this opening in the database.
Jan-18-06  Endgame: Does anyone know why it is rarely played nowadays?
Jan-18-06  foolishmovesss: I believe its rarely played because of the KID and gruenfeld type defences.
