  1. Nice! Thank you Lucas. This is amazing. I will run it and see if it is working good(Test).

    1. There is a bug when a player is selected, when some alias are indicated these are not taken into account. I'll fix it when more bugs comes along.

    2. The database statistics looks very nice. Yes there are some issues with alias. But overall very nice feature.

  2. I have done some testing and so far it is working good. You don't know how powerful Lucas is for training. I looked at stats generated in Lucas from my games and so amazing what useful information about my game. Some of the openings I thought I was good at but apparently not and the other way round. Also looking at stats for players like GM Carlsen and other GMs gave me insights into their strengths, weaknesses and their frequently played openings. Thank you Lucas.

    1. Thanks for trying it. What I'm glad about is that it might come in handy.
