I think that this 4...dxe5 line is not yet uploaded to the course, I also was looking forward to see what the Chessmood team prepared. Even if you watched the course this line was not yet there I think. I will follow this thread with interest, thanks Gor!

1. e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 d6 4.Nf3 dxe5 5.Nxe5 c6 This is a very solid line for Black and very trendy at the moment. 6.c4 is premature, a better try for advantage would be the deceptively modest 6.Be2 followed by 0-0 and then c4. I will attach two key games that illustrate the potential of this line for White both tactically and strategically.

Hi everyone, I also encountered the same Alekhine variation in my slow game. I lost, mainly because my openent played without mistakes according to engine and I was in general too passive.

We definitely need the some ideas for White.
