This question is not related to chess as such and is more related to the chess website lichess. I tried asking in their forum but haven't yet got an answer.

I would like to look at my games based on a specific opening, say B20. The search doesn't allow me to search my games based on a specific opening.

Is there a way to do it?

I'm afraid you cannot filter your own games based on a specific opening on lichess.

You can, however, aggregately analyze the results you achieved on a certain opening by exploiting the Chess Insights feature, which is available in your profile page (on the right-hand side of your rating graph).
After clicking on it and feeding your own games, you can go on the Filters tab, choose the specific opening you want under the Game window and then select the metrics you want to analyze. At the bottom there is also a set of games used to generate the insight.

  • Yes, I am aware of chess insights. Ideally, I would like to download my games I played in a specific opening. I think this is going to involve some work I guess.

  • @Adhvaitha You could download all your games from lichess, then import them in Chessbase. From there, you can filter based on opening. Commented Sep 4, 2020 at 7:19
  • Other interfaces would also work- main advantages are that there are free options, but chessbase is quite pricey (about 100 USD). SCIDvsPC is my favorite, and it is capable of doing this.
