  12. Starting Out - Alekhine Defence

    Starting Out - Alekhine Defence

    Our Price: $24.95

Unsurprisingly, Alekhine's Defence has always been a favourite amongst uncompromising players such as Fischer and Alekhine himself, while more recently it's been utilised by the likes of Ivanchuk and Short.
