Description

In hardly any other opening does the second player get so many chances for an early initiative as in the Chigorin Defence 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6. Among its practitioners are A.Morozevich and I.Miladinovic, as well as various other strong grandmasters.
Nevertheless, for a long time the Chigorin Defence had a dubious reputation. Only the success of the players just mentioned, combined with the appearance of the first German edition of this book in 2001 gradually changed this. This now thoroughly updated essential work on the Chigorin offers 115 games scrutinised in detail, explains all the strategic principles and therefore creates a solid theoretical basis for the defence.

The author is a Ukrainian IM who now lives in Stuttgart/Germany. This book founded his reputation as a respected theoretician.

“The contents are first-class and the author has put a tremendous amount of work into the book. Material is drawn from nearly all possible sources and the author has added an abundance of original analysis, improvements, and sug-gestions of his own.”
(Carsten Hansen on Chesscafe, Checkpoint May 2005)

“It will not only become the Chigorin Defence bible for many years to come, but it establishes the Chigorin as a sound defense deserving respect.” (John Watson, The Week in Chess, Book Reviews #46)
