Alekhine Defence 4 Pawns Attack

The Four Pawns Attack in the Alekhine Defence leads to tactical fun for both sides. White plays to push his opponent off the board. Black steps around the pawns with pieces and gains a lead in development. In Miguel Sanjuan Garcia vs Ansgar Barthel, the Four White Pawns became targets. By move 14, three of those pawns were gone and the fourth pawn was hanging. Chalk this one up for Black.
