Book DescriptionEscape the over-analyzed by-ways of the Indian Defenses with this surprising opening for Black 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6. Black almost contemptuously ignores White's move and sets about on his own attack of the center. This opening has always been an excellent choice in tournament play, where activity and surprise value are worth their weight in gold, but until recently the Chigorin lacked a firm, systematic, theoretical foundation. A new generation of Russian players has renovated this opening to make it a fully respectable member of the modern openings. This book provides complete coverage of this lively counter-attacking system, and shows how difficult it is for White to handle without careful preparation.

    On master level, the Chigorin Defence has been played relatively seldom, and probably that's one of the reasons why it has been analysed less intensively than other openings.
