Alex Dunne Wins With 1.e4 Nc6

FIDE Master Alex Dunne possesses wisdom from a lifetime of chess experience. Alex Dunne said in a 2006 interview that the way to improve your chess is study and practice. Each gives you different things. The practice gives you confidence. The study gives you knowledge. Study and practice work together to make players stronger.

Alex Dunne is a famous correspondence master and columnist for the USCF Chess Life magazine for decades. He wrote “The Check Is in the Mail” column for Chess Life. I was a USCF postal chess master. Dunne published a few of my short wins in the magazine. Here Alex Dunne won this Queens Knight Defence against Joseph Veach.
