Former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor takes a contemporary look at one of Black's most ambitious counters to 1 e4, the Alekhine Defence. This is a sharp, creative opening in which Black attacks from the very beginning, luring White's central pawns forward in the expectation of destroying them later on.
In this book Taylor constructs a practical repertoire for Black, ideal for the modern-day player. All the key tactical and positional ideas are covered and important move-order nuances are highlighted. This book provides everything you need to know in order to play the Alekhine with confidence.
