The Alekhine Defense - GM Marian Petrov

GM Marian Petrov is back with another awesome opening course!

This time he turns his attention to the enigmatic Alekhine’s Defense – the hypermodern opening devised by the 4th World Champion.

Play for the win from move 1 with the Alekhine’s Defense (1.e4 Nf6!)

By avoiding symmetry, Black creates exciting, imbalanced positions full of creative potential. White usually chases the knight around but soon finds their position stretched and under serious pressure.

Openings expert GM Marian Petrov teaches you how to play the Alekhine’s Defense like a pro in this 8-hour training.

Far more than just opening theory, this course also reveals the Alekhine’s strongest attacks and tactical combinations – showing you how to actually win games as Black, not just get a good position.

GM Petrov covers all of the main setups including the Four Pawns Attack and the early fianchetto variation (4…g6), with analysis of memorable, attacking games in each line too.

Discover how to win with the opening your opponents don’t want to see!
