A Knight’s Dream Home | Alexander Alekhine vs Emanuel Lasker 1934

Round 12 of the 1934 Zurich chess tournament was a battle of the World Chess Champions. Alexander Alekhine, the 4th and current World Chess Champion, battled the 2nd World Chess Champion Emanuel Lasker in a Queen’s Gambit Declined. The game begins innocently enough with each side rapidly deploying their minor pieces. However, the position becomes dynamic once Lasker challenges Alekhine’s center. Where is a knight’s dream home?
