Beating the Alekhine Defense
By GM Bryan Smith
Recommended for Intermediate Players
Nothing is more indicative of the iconoclastic conceptions of the hypermodern school of thought than the bizarre defense introduced by Alekhine. Opposing all tenets of the classical school, Black allows his King's Knight to be driven about the board in the early stages of the game, in the expectation of provoking a weakness in White's center pawns.
Here Bryan shows you how to battle and defeat the Alekhine.
