Time per game (hours)
There were 2-move book openings in this stage chosen by Cato. Each opening was repeated 4 times in a round, and then again in the reverse games round. In total 14 2-move openings were used. The first letter of the ECO codes was
distributed as follows:
If we use the opening 'family name' (using format FAMILY_NAME: VARIANT....) the top 3 are:
Sicillian - 23 times
Queen's pawn game - 9 times
English, Nimzovich-Larsen attack, Petrov - 8 times
engines had a lot of freedom to choose the opening variant. However, 48.2%
of the game pairs repeated the same ECO code twice, and 32.1%
repeated the same opening variant. In 19.6% of the game pairs the ECO
first letter was not repeated twice.
