Product Details

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 Defense has always been a favorite among uncompromising players such as Fischer and Alekhine himself, while more recently it's been utilized by the likes of Ivanchuk and Short. In this easy-to-read guide, openings expert John Cox goes back to basics, studying the essential principles of Alekhine's Defense and its numerous variations. Throughout the book there are an abundance of notes, tips and warnings to guide the improving player, while key strategies, ideas and tactics for both sides are clearly illustrated.

Author John Cox is a FIDE Master and experienced international player. He won numerous junior titles including the British and London Under-18 Championships. This is his first book for Everyman.
