Alekhine's Defense is a popular choice for Black in which the second player permits White to occupy a significant center territory with the intent of acquiring strong counter-play. Accurate play is required of both sides, and there are numerous opportunities for sacrifices and traps on both sides. This collection of five hundred games ending in 25 moves or fewer provides an excellent opportunity to study strategy and defense. The games represent players from novice to grandmaster, and have been collected from a wide range of sources to represent worldwide play in this opening. This is the 14th in the popular "Miniatures" series by Bill Wall.
