Season 11 premier division, openings after RR1

The games of first two RRs of the premier division are played without book. Below are a few statistics after RR1 is over. It is interesting to compare these with the bookless part of division 1.

First move
12/28 (42.9%) start with d4
14/28 (50%) start with e4
2/28 (7.1%) start with Nf3

By engine:
Andscacs: 2 e4 1 Nf3
Chiron: 1 d4 1 e4 1 Nf3
Fire: 3 e4
Fizbo: 2 d4 2 e4
Ginkgo: 2 d4 2 e4
Houdini: 3 d4 1 e4
Komodo: 2 d4 1 e4
