Black vs. White W-L stats ? Hello all.I'm new here to this teriffic site.Can anyone tell me on Gameknot or otherwise what the statistics are in overall games Black vs White?
example:
White 40 % wins
Black 35 % wins
draws 25%
I imagine it gets tougher for black to win as ratings go up, can anyone confirm this as well?
thanks so much and I just love this site !

win ration Hello Stivb

I'm not sure about Gameknot, but generally white scores about 55%.
At least this is true of master class or higher.
At higher ratings the proportion of draws is higher.
(The same ratio can be had with fewer or more draws).
It is harder to win at high levels - for one thing, master don't become flustered or desparate with a poor position.

i have a bit of a better score with the black pieces, though i feel much more comfortable with white.
i usually play for fun here though, and get in as many games as possible.....

all games: won-53% lost-41% drawn-5%
team games: 36% 55% 8% 31 133 (11%)
as white: 51% 42% 6% 28 489 (42%)
as black: 54% 40% 5% 30 656 (57%)

i would guess for higher-rated expert players white would be much better yeah.

but yes, I think higher rated players would certainly have a better record with white.

To determine the statistics here at gameknot you could make a calculation using the information found on the first screen of the online games database.

For the 1500+ GK Database (approximately)

White Wins: 44.69%
Black Wins: 40.74%
Draw: 14.57%

I say approximately because the DB has wins and losses listed as percentages rather than actual games, and so I backwards-derived the real numbers and then did percentages. I suppose there is a more accurate way, but it's a good five-minute estimate.
