Alekhine Defence Combat Delpire

Jason Delpire won this wide-open game against the Alekhine Defence. White's 4.Nf3 is as good as anything. Black has multiple choices at moves 4 and 7. The opening led to equal chances. White can virtually force a draw after move 10. Instead, the advantage flipped from Black to White to Black to White. Players struggled to stay active and safe. Delpire had the last laugh with a strong queen vs Black's undeveloped bishop and rook.
