Beginning Chess Lessons: Part 4 : How to Spot Alakine Defense Opening in a Chess Game


The next kings point opening will be Alakine’s
Defense. Alakine was a very great Russian Chess master, and world champion, and this
is what he liked to play against the pawn to king’s four opening. Instead of bringing
out his pawn, he would typically play this; knight to king’s bishop three. And what tended
to happen thereafter was that the white pawn would attack the knight, which would usually
then move into the center. The most common of the white next moves was probably pawn
to queen’s four, protecting his king’s pawn. At this point white had many black had many
alternatives. I think Alakine usually played this as his next move. Now he’s attacking
both pawns. This one, of course is defended by this one, this one is under attack, so
the probable next move for white would be that. And then, probably the next thing will
be to start thinking in terms of bringing the bishop out so he could castle, so he would
usually play this move.
