The Alekhine's Defence is a chess opening that begins with the moves:. Black tempts White's pawns forward to form a broad pawn centre , with plans to undermine and attack the white structure later in the spirit of hypermodern defence. White's imposing mass of pawns in the centre often includes pawns on c4, d4, e5, and f4. Grandmaster GM Nick de Firmian observes of Alekhine's Defence in MCO , "The game immediately loses any sense of symmetry or balance, which makes the opening a good choice for aggressive fighting players. Nothing is more indicative of the iconoclastic conceptions of the 'hypermodern school' than the bizarre defence introduced by Alekhine Although opposing to all tenets of the classical school, Black allows his King's Knight to be driven about the board in the early stages of the game, in the expectation of provoking a weakness in White's centre pawns. The Alekhine's Defence was more popular in the past.
