Lopsided Opening Results

In this post and perhaps others I will present opening lines which: 1) have been played at least in 20 games and 2) where one side had at least twice as many wins as losses.

Here is a position arising from the Grunfeld: 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 d5 4. Nf3 Bg7 5. Bg5 Ne4 6. cxd5 Nxg5 7. Nxg5 e6 8. Nf3 exd5 9. e3 a5 10. Be2 O-O 11. O-O c6 says it has a database of 2 million games, and has the feature 'position stats.'
In its historical archive of games from 1485-1990, it gives: White won 0%, Black won 21%, Draw 79%. In the games played from 1991-present, it gives: White won 8%, Black won 43%, Draw 49%
