  offramp: Eleven Nimzo-Indians in 17 games. By the way, are the games a bit mixed-up here? There isn't the usual b/w alternation.
Jan-27-15  SimonWebbsTiger: @<Offramp>

I think the number of Nimzo Indians is probably due to Sammy (certainly) and Don Miguel hardly ever playing 1. e4 and that Najdorf did suffer a bit in the King's Indian v. Reshevsky in their 1952 match.

Jun-06-15  zanzibar: So many of the games only have the year, and so the game sorting is out of whack.

Using the round numbers, it appears a game is missing (R1).

Of course anybody comparing the xtab given above against the game count would arrive at the same conclusion.

Maybe one of Reschevsky's wins is missing? That could be R1.
