The Fast Knight development!
British FIDE Master Chris Dunworth, an expert in the Alekhine Defense, lets us into the crazy Horse world of 1.e4 Nf6.
Chris starts by showing us that allowing a massive center is okay, as Black can undermine it and still have a strong defensive position.
Then he outlines the 3 main White responses before showing us basic ideas for both sides and the current theoretical status of each of the critical moves.
The 4 Pawns Attack is then examined in detail when Chris shows that a quick c5 solves Black’s opening problems against the sidelines: a ‘Fianchetto’ with …c5 is good in this mainline.
