After 1.e4 Nf6 Black is playing full contact “provocateur” chess. He develops a piece and attacksthe White center pawn, drawing it forward to be targeted for siege. At first White gets to drivem around the pesky Black Knight while gaining time and space - but is it hollow space behind a rickety pawn front, or a positional vice-grip? Grandmasters disagree, and for the rest of us to trot out Alekhine’s Defense has been like playing football without a helmet until now! Here at last Tim Sawyer introduces his precision game plan in The Alekhine Defense Playbook, a compact repertoire of pre-packaged Black mischief and mayhem. From the very first move there’s no getting away from the Playbook, as White faces a clear-cut program of counterplay no matter what he does. Loaded with original analysis and plenty of common sense advice, the Playbook is your complete pocket guide to the hypermodern Alekhine Defense.
