Chess Opening Theory/1. e4/1...Nf6/2. Nc3
Alekhine's Defence[edit | edit source]
White has refused to take the risk to push his pawn forward. Instead, he chose to defend it. This choice can be seen as "evasive". Black might think that White is trying to avoid Alekhine's Defence. He may accept to transpose into Vienna Game with 2...e5 or he may continue in a sharper line with 2...d5.
