Alekhine's Defence (Hort) - 2nd hand
With additional material on Owen's Defence and the Nimzovich Defence by Raymond Keene
A 2nd-hand book in very good condition. Algebraic.
This is the first major study of Alekhine's Defence for several years. Written in figurine algebraic notation, it is an exhaustive analysis of the Defence and its variations by a leading exponent. Popularised by Alekhine over fifty years ago, the half-open defence 1 e4 Nf6 is once again being used to considerable effect in first-class chess.
Black encourages White to set up a strong pawn centre in expectation of mounting a counter-attack. As planned by Black, it is easy for White to over-reach and find this position in ruins. However, it is also easy for Balck to fail to find enough counter-play and to be quickly swamped.
