Former US Open Champion Timothy Taylor takes a modern look at one of Black`s most ambitious counters to 1 e4, the Alekhine Defence. This is a sharp opening in which Black counterattacks from move one, luring White`s central pawns forward to create the prospect of undermining them later on. The Alekhine is a popular weapon for creative grandmasters, such as Nigel Short and Vassily Ivanchuk. It has also been used by Bobby Fischer and - more recently - by Magnus Carlsen, probably the best player in the world.

By studying deeply the most important games and also by drawing upon his own experience in the opening,Taylor is able to construct a practical repertoire for Black - ideal for the modern player. The key ideas for both sides are covered, there are recommendations on lines to play and lines to avoid, and crucial move-order nuances are highlighted.This book provides everything you need to know to play the Alekhine with confidence.

•A dynamic repertoire for Black
•Provides answers to all of White`s possibilities
•Packed with new ideas, analysis and advice
International Mational Master Timothy Taylor is an experienced tournament player who has enjoyed several notable successes. He is a very popular chess writer who is renowned for his entertaining and thought-provoking style.
