In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov is presenting to you the 6 best chess opening traps in the Alekhine’s Defense, which happens after the moves: 1.e4 Nf6.
Black tempts White’s pawns to go forward to form a broad pawn centre, with plans to undermine and attack White’s structure later in the spirit of hypermodern defense. White’s imposing mass of pawns in the centre often includes pawns on c4, d4, e5, and f4.
The traps that Igor is presenting to you are easy to implement in YOUR games. No matter what Black plays, your moves almost remain the same.
