Lopsided Opening Results Part Three

Some posts ago I presented two examples from the opening in which one side as a lopsided score against the other, that is, one side won twice as many games as the other side. Here is another example, arising from Alekhine's Defense:

1. e4 Nf6 2. e5 Nd5 3. d4 d6 4. c4 Nb6 5. exd6 exd6 6. Nc3 Be7 7. h3 Bf5 8. Nf3 0-0

The game database of has 116 games starting with the above line. From my manual count, which is fallible though, White won 50 times, and Black won 21 times.
