Chess Arena 3.0 calls this opening Alekhine: Samisch Attack, 3...Nxc3. The critical position arises after 1.e4 b6 2.Nc3 Bb7 3.g3 e6 4.Bg2 Nf6 5.Nge2 c5 6.d3 Be7 7.O-O d6 8.e5 Nd5 9.exd6 Qxd6 10.Ne4 Qd7 11.b3 Nc6 12.Bb2 e5 13.Qd2 f5 14.N4c3 Nd4 15.f4. White would have had the better game after 15.Nxd4 exd4 16.Nxd5 Bxd5 17.Bxd5 Qxd5 18.Rae1
