I TA a course that has Huffman Coding as its last homework assignment, and it's awesome to see that lichess utilizes it [:

Keep up the great work!

As a suggestion, i think that "comment on blog post" threads like these should belong somewhere else in the forum, or even outside the forum.

Question: Why is there 680 million games in the database but only 40 million in the Opening Explorer ?

Relating to @savagechess2k 's question, how often do the openings explorer update with master games? Where do the master games come from?
