distributed as follows:
The 8-move book determined the opening in almost all cases, 97.6%
of the game pairs repeated the same ECO code twice, 97.6% repeated the
same opening variant. All of the game pairs repeated the ECO
first letter twice.

out of book, 78.6% of the pairs diverged at most after 1 move. The

rounds 33 and 40, QGD, Stockfish won as white and drew as black).
