The Alekhine Defense is a bold choice for
Black, challenging the classical chess rules
from the very beginning of the game yet proving
itself to be a flexible system. Black can choose
to head for mind-boggling complications
or carefully manoeuvre across the 6th to
8th ranks, waiting for the right time to strike
out at the center. Although once a favorite
of Bobby Fischer and occasionally played by
Magnus Carlsen, the lack of Alekhine Defense
games at the level of elite Grandmasters
today means that many lines and ideas
remain untested in practice. As a result, this
opening leads to lively, often open positions
with chances for both sides. With 1…Nf6 Black
signals that he is playing to win.
This book, consisting of 16 parts and
87 chapters, not only covers the traditional
Alekhine lines but also takes a comprehensive
look at variations rooted firmly in
the 21st century. Moreover, thanks to the use
of modern technology and the authors’ deep
analysis the evaluations of many well-known
lines are revised.
The authors have strived to write a lively work
which is useful for both players with high ELO
ratings and club players.
