15 Counter the Alekhine Defense

15. Counter the Alekhine Defense

Course 61 episodes
(2 hours 48 min)
Creators GM Avetik Grigoryan

The Alekhine Defense is not very popular on higher levels and there are good reasons why. 

After 2.e5, White naturally gets more space. And if they play it the right way, they can leave Black’s army suffocating.

The danger is that if White overextends their strategy could backfire on them, which is what Black is counting on.

But don’t worry, in this course GM Avetik will show you how to get an advantage with White without pushing that fine line of overextension...
