 wildcard in Chess Video Search
is this possible?

i would like to search for Curtains games in the nimzo/bogo indian, and Curtains games with 1.e4

i would like to search for the phrase "L***: B vs" where asterisks are wildcard characters. this would return games in the "L" series where curtains has Black.

I'd also like to search for the phrase "E*: W vs" to find curtains' games with 1.e4 from his new "E" series.

etc...

Thank you.

Sadly the tool that underlies the search engine just isn't that powerful. Here are some possible workarounds, but they don't get you exactly what you want:
