How to Play Chess: The Alekhine Defense

     Garry Reynolds wields a mighty pawn storm against my choice of the Alekhine Defense that I once coined: “The Desperado Defense”. It is the first time I faced this particular line by white.

     Garry Reynolds (white) DR KindredSpirit (black)

     1.e4  Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.c4 Nb6 4.c5 Nd5 5.Bc4 e6 6.d4 b6 It is important to create countermeasures against the white center as soon as possible.

     7.cxb6 axb6 8.Nf3 Ba6 9.Bxa6 Rxa6 10.0-0 Nc6 11.Nc3 Nxc3 12.bxc3 Qa8 13.Qe2 Ra4 Increasing my square count along the rank. White positions the R to support the advanced e-pawn.

     14.Re1 h6 Here is an example of defense in square count. Black guards the g5 square and also creates luft for the K that stops a backrow mate possibility in the future.

     15.Rd1 Nd8 16.Qc2 Be7 17.Be3 d5 With the purpose of trying to neutralize the central complex.

     18.exd6e.p. Bxd6 19.Nd2 0-0 20.Ne4 Be7 21.Bf4 Qa5 22.Bxc7 Rc4 23.Bxd8 Rxd8 24.Qb3 Rdc8 25.Rab1 R8c6 26.Rd3 Ra4 27.d5 exd5 28.Rxd5 Qa8 29.Re5 Ra3 30.Qd1 Bf8 31.Qd7 Rxa2 32.h3 Ra7 33.Qd3 Draw 1/2-1/2.
