Welcome to this Intro of the Alekhine Defense (Main Line), a rather offbeat counterattacking opening, and definitely one worth looking at.  

1...Nf6! looks like a strange move allowing 2. e5 gaining space, but black has the idea to allow white to build a nice center and then attack it with pawns and piece play.  In this video we look at the first ten moves of the main line and discuss the ideas involved.

Hope you enjoy!
