Alekhine Two Pawns Attack

Alekhine Defence Two Pawns Attack or Chase Variation leads to less familiar positions. Play allows for a certain amount of originality. Better tactical players usually win. That is why I train every day. My Tactics ratings on chess.com and on lichess.com have both topped 2200. And I still do Chessimo tactics training which I've done for 10 years using a program originally developed by Grandmaster Gilberto Milos of Brazil.

Tactical skills can offset slightly inferior openings. The higher rated Robert Zelcic left the book in this Alekhine Defence against Zdenko Padjen. The players had to develop their own plans. Robert Zelcic gradually turned the game in Black's favor.
