fun with Alekhine I recently played the line 1. e4 Nf6 2.Nf3 d5 3.ed Nxd5 4.Bc4

What do you think of this.

why don't they reaqd the game name... After too many times of getting e4-e5 in games titled Alekhine e4 Nf6, i hereby challenge anyone who wishes to test my opening (see above)

The game you mention is more of a transposition into the Petroff defense, isn't it?

Well 1. e4 Nf6 2. Nf3 Nxe4 basically just loses a pawn. 1. e4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. exd5 Nxd5 4. Bc4 is okay, but not particularly popular, a more popular similar variation is 1. e4 Nf6 2. e5 Nd5 3. c4 Nb6 4. c5 Nd5 5. Bc4 (the Chase variation). The 1. e4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 variations resemble the center counter, but white tends to get only a slight initiative.

The Petroff involves an early ...e5 by black and certainly no ...d5.
chris21 10 ( +1 | -1 )
Yes, but the Petroff is reached before d5 is played by black. In the game mentioned in the first post I mean.
chris21 9 ( +1 | -1 )
Appologies! Ignore me there is no e5 played by black in the first post:(

atrifix thank you for correcting my mistake.
the line i was referring to was 2.Nc3 by white, and not 2.Nf3.
sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.

After 1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5, White's best is probably 3.e5 Nfd7 4.d4 e6, transposing to the French Defence. Having begun with an aggressive opening such as the Alekhine, the French Defence will probably not be to Black's liking.

Well 3. exd5 is more popular. 3. e5 can be adequately answered by either 3... d4 (most common) or 3... Ne4!?, especially because on 3... Nfd7 4. e6!? fxe6 5. d4 is strong.

philaretus I prefer black to play d4 instead of Nfd7. Or Ne4. This leads to very interesting play. Please find me repertoire herewith :
