GM Yermo Teaches You Openings! - Alekhine Defense - Part 1

Opening: B04, B05: Alekhine's Defense: Modern (1 e4 Nf6 2 e5 Nd5 3 d4 d6 4 Nf3), Alekhine's defence: modern, 4...Bg4.

Player(s): Gipslis, Larsen, Jimenez Zerquera

I took up the Alekhine under the influence of the two great games from Larsen's book of his best games. What attracted me was the originality of concept, of how easily White can be mislead into thinking that he's doing everything right, only to find his position overextended and very difficult to play. Another big help came from the opening monograph on the Alekhine Defense, written by a great theoretician and a devoted practitioner of this opening, GM Vladimir Bagirov. The rewards came immediately,as I was able to win a couple of nice games, shown in Video 2.
