Présentation de l'éditeur

This series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.

In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in studying the Alekhine Defence. Black's idea in the Alekhine Defence is a bold one. By inviting White's central pawns to advance, Black hopes later on to undermine and demolish White's centre. This ambitious strategy appeals to players who enjoy sharp lines and positional imbalances. Using illustrative games, Lakdawala outlines a reliable repertoire for Black, examines the main positional and tactical ideas for both sides, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about successfully playing the Alekhine Defence.

* Essential guidance and training in the Alekhine Defence
* Presents a repertoire for Black with 1 e4 Nf6
* Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great book (!) 23 avril 2014
Par Lone_Ranger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This review was written partially as a rebuttal to the earlier One Star review. That reviewer got very upset by the semi-political remark in this book which had 'Bush' and 'Hitler' in the same sentence. I dont think the author was going to directly compare the 2 persons but this statement can be loosely interpreted. I do agree that Political statements should not be placed in chess books.
However leaving politics aside and just going over the chess material this is a really great book.

The author shows some great lines vs. the topical modern variation which is currently the number one choice of Strong GMs from the white side of an Alekhine defense. He shows the best line for black to combat it and concedes a slight edge which is a normal one from white side. He also shows another offbeat line , the Westerinen variation where Black moves ..Nb6 anticipating the C4 move by white. This line looks unclear and further research and master level (IM/GM) games are needed. It is a very good unbalancing try. Althought the main game shows that white indeed retains an edge, other tries by black in the main lines are shown which leads to an unclear game.

The other chapters are also well written especially the 4 pawns attack. I have not gone thru these chapters in detail but after going thru them, i will give Alekhine's defense another try. I used to play it but gave it up after varying results, I won some games and got crushed in others.

This is a true labor of love. The only caveat is the book is peppered with 'Pithy' comments by the author. Including the politically laden one which so upset the previous reviewer. Relax Sir, this book aint that bad to merit a ONE Star.

I will give it FIVE Stars for the chess centered material, leaving aside politics and history.

I have been a French player, and enjoy how the author demonstrates the pattern similarities and differences in opening ideas. The move by move format allows me to check my thinking with an IM and later with a powerful chess engine.

This is THE book I wish I'd had before I gave up playing the Alekhine defense a decade ago, mainly because of the dreaded Voronezh system. There are antidotes to this and other attempts to punish Black for his impudent knight sortie, and Mr. Lakdawala is considerate enough to provide alternatives tailored to the varied temperaments of his readers. Having tried this book out with a student (whom I was unable to dissuade from playing the Alekhine's) I can say that he was able to replicate the feat Mr. Lakdawala recounts in this book, namely to play successfully against a stronger opponent with a minimum of study, grasping only the key concepts, having studied one or two well annotated games.
But a word about the hysterically absurd review that gave this book one star and urged readers not only to boycott the books of Mr. Lakdawala, as well as the entire list of publications by Everyman Chess. Please read the rebuttals appended to that review to form your own conclusions, and if like me, you see the monstrous distortion of argument for political purposes of that reviewer, you will wish to uphold the traditions of free speech and inquiry that are the cornerstones of the Western tradition by BUYING, not only as many books by Mr. Lakdawala, but published by Everyman Chess as well. Do not let the opponents of freedom, be they Middle Eastern terrorists, or middle aged Americans ignorant of history, win!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I want to see Everyman books continue their great job. 7 mai 2014

Prolific and very helpful Mr. Lakdawala snagged himself politically without meaning to IMO. He contributes so much to chess and from my knowledge of him, he's no radical, politcially. In fact he's a chess nut with little time for politics. So forgive him this attempt at analogy and see the book for it's true value. If it made you think about overextension because of his analogy then all the better. I have always ignored Bobbie Fischer and every other great player when they talked politics (Fischer was as nutty as they come). I appreciate the work. Great job, Cy. Some might think I'm fully comparing Fischer with Lakdawala. That's a trap, logically. Take each person separately and particularly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I read the reviews and bought this book, even though I don't play Alekhine's Defence and don't plan to 6 mai 2014
Par Eric - Publié sur Amazon.com

Let me be upfront here: I'm a friend of Cyrus's, a national master and sometime chess teacher, a lifelong liberal, and for what it's worth, the possessor of a masters degree in a field that bears on European history.
Cyrus has done wonders with Everman's "move by move" format, producing entertaining and informative books in game collections as well as openings. I heartily recommend his Capablanca, Botvinnik, and Korchnoi books as well.
To some extent, reviews are unnecessary for books that embrace Amazon's "Look inside" format. You can see practically the whole book, anyway, so what more is there to say? And so why review the book at all? Maybe you are a chess amateur, and can't decide whether the material, however entertainingly presented, is worthwhile? Let me join International Master Jeremy Silman in assuring you that this is a worthwhile book. I also felt strongly enough about the injustice of one negative review that I bought it anyway, even though I don't play Alekhine's. It's always good to have game collections as an element of one's study, and The Alekhine's Defence is that as well. And from what I know about European and Middle Eastern history, his analogies are spot on.
Cyrus--and I'm not divulging anything here that is unknown to San Diego chess players--is one of the hardest working, modest, and genial bearers of the International Master title. Were it not for health reasons it's certain he could have become a Grandmaster and joined the world's elite. He charges far less than he is worth for lessons and lives in genteel poverty necessarily supplemented by writing books, upon which he lavishes an extravagant amount of effort. When you see Cyrus playing the London System at a weekend tournament, you can be sure he's hard at work on a book on that opening. And when you see an unfairly negative review of his book on Amazon, you're seeing a vicious attack on one of his main sources of livelihood. Shame on anyone who wants to score political points at the expense of a good man and his family!
Even though this review is about Cyrus, let me share one personal anecdote, since it bears on the negative reviews I mentioned above. My own father once compared my aggression in a game to Hitler and Napoleon's. Admittedly, he was more entitled to do than some, being a graduate of West Point and an expert in Soviet affairs at the State Department, but how did I take it? Did I burst into tears and say some of my best friends are Jews? No, I looked grimly at my position and--honest to God!--thought "winter is coming!"
