  EmperorAtahualpa: Considering his (very) unsuccessful record in this tournament (0 points out of 11 games), perhaps he should considering switching away from the Nimzowitsch defense (1.e4 Nf6?!).

The Nimzowitsch defense is even his standard reply to 1.e4! Check here: Repertoire Explorer: Alex Kulikov (black)

i always thought that defence was called Alekhine Defence

  EmperorAtahualpa: Oops, I meant of course 1.e4 Nc6 as was played in this game.

1.e4 Nc6 is the Nimzowitsch defense, 1.e4 Nf6 is the Alekhine defense.
