In the Alekhine Defence, contrary to the classical methods of playing in theopening, Black does not fight for the centre with his pawns, but begins toexert immediate pressure against White's centre. Black's knight on f6attacks the pawn on e4, and if it advances, then Black's d-pawn joins intothe attack against it.The Alekhine Defence is particularly applicable in encounters againstplayers who are inferior in class, as well as in games with a shorttime-control. This opening is not used so often in practice, so youropponent might lose plenty of time to recollect the opening theory. Thatmight prove to be a very negative factor for him in the forthcoming fight.
