Van Geet vs Briem 1.Nc3

The game Dirk Daniel Van Geet vs Stefan Briem transposed into the Alekhine Defence. This can easily happen after an early Nf6. Compare 1.Nc3 d5 2.e4 Nf6 and 1.Nc3 Nf6 2.e4 d5 and 1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5. Each move order reaches the exact same position. This exchange 3.exd5 is a variation of the Scandinavian Defence after 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Nf6 3.Nc3. Further commentary and analysis may be found in some books on that opening.

Stefan Briem of Iceland was born in 1938 according to FIDE. He sometimes played the Alapin 1.e4 e5 2.Ne2. At the Reykjavik Open in 1988 generations and genders clashed. The veteran Stefan Briem had Black vs Judit Polgar born in 1976. There a guy about 50 played a girl about 12. Of course Judit Polgar may be the greatest woman player of all time. Their game went from a King’s Gambit to a Falkbeer Counter Gambit and ended drawn. Here Van Geet himself played 3.exd5, and I present some detailed analysis.
