    Beating the Alekhine Defense with the Exchange Variation

    Product Code: CB0006CD

    Description

    "There are many good features to this variation(1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 d6 4.c4 Nb6 5.exd6). If Black recaptures 5..cxd6, White has good control of key squares such as d5 and e5 and has an excellent file for his Rook on e1. On 5..exd6, White's spatial advantages remain and Black has fewer opportunities for counterplay" - Soltis. Here you're given the strategy and analysis to win in both variations.

    • Starting Out - Alekhine Defence Catalog Code: B0012EM
      Alekhine's Defence is a sharp and controversial opening in which Black attacks from the very first move, provoking White into lunging forward in the centre. White is often able to construct an impressively large central pawn formation, but Black's hope is that this becomes over-stretched and disintegrates in the face of a vicious counterattack. Unsurprisingly, Alekhine's Defence has always been a favourite amongst uncompromising players such as Fischer and Alekhine himself, while more recently it's been utilised by the likes of Ivanchuk and Short.
