Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-14-08  Alphastar: It's odd that the winning percentage is so much in white's favor, yet the position is almost symmetrical.
Jun-14-08  cuendillar: Remember that it is not this <position> scoring so well for white, but this <ECO code>. Some of black's main replys have their own ECO, removing those games from the data summarized above.
