Alekhine Defence Light Squares

Jeffrey Baffo has included the Queens Knights Attack 1.Nc3 in his repertoire for many years. This game transposed into the Alekhine Defence that resembles a Scandinavian 2.Nc3 d4 line. Black's dark-squared bad bishop became completely useless. White attacked on the light squares and won a queen.

Baffo (1417) - temujin1206 (1310), Live Chess, 15.07.2018 begins 1.Nc3 Nf6 2.e4 d5 3.e5 d4 4.Nce2 [4.exf6 dxc3=] 4...Nfd7 5.f4 [5.e6!?] 5...e6 6.Ng3 f6 7.Nf3 Nc6 8.Bb5 Bc5 9.d3 a6 10.Bxc6 bxc6 11.0-0 0-0 12.Bd2 Bb7 13.a4 [13.f5! exf5 14.e6 Ne5 15.Nxf5+/=] 13...Ba7 14.a5 c5 15.b3 Bxf3 [15...f5 16.Ng5 Qe8=] 16.Qxf3 fxe5 17.f5 exf5 18.Nxf5 Qf6?
