Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary
World chess champion Alexander Alekhine (1892-1946) refined the art of Kingside attack into its purest form. Often Alekhines onslaught was accompanied by the spectacular placement of a piece directly in front of the enemy Kings castled position, exposed to immediate capture. This specialized tactic is called Alekhines Block,  designed to jam interior lines around the defending King or break up his pawn cover. Alekhines Block is a powerful weapon in the armory of chess warfare, and this book is the first to explore its inner workings.Never before has it been possible to study this crucial but little-understood element of the Kingside attack. Far from being a random event, Alekhines Block is here revealed as a logical step on the road to checkmate. This volume presents systematic and carefully selected examples, which entertain while preparing you to use Alekhines Block in your own pursuit of the enemy King. The knowledge gained here can only make you a more aggressive (and dangerous!) attacking player.The Tactician=s Handbook SeriesAlekhine=s BlockCombination CrossMitrofanovs=s DeflectionLasker=s CombinationThe Steeplechase
