Blitz Chess #383: Alekhine’s Defense, Modern

It’s white’s space versus black’s bishop pair out of the Alekhine’s Defense. This opening is regarded as hypermodern as it permits white to build up a strong pawn presence in the center, only to then try and undermine it. This was a 5|0 time control game, where I was playing with the white pieces.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
