    I thought I might share this (very dubious) idea I faced online against a number of Alekhine players.

    It goes 1. e4 Nf6 2. e5 d5 (??!) - yes I know!!

    After 3. exf6 (seems logical enough) then Black plays 3... e5 (?!) - is this what Black is trying to achieve with this piece gambit?

    Well he played it so I imagine that it is, yes.

    Doesn't seem worth the piece to get two centre pawns out. Especially as vital a piece as the KKt.

    "Dubious" is putting it very gently. It's utterly terrible.

    Alekhine never played that move
