Paul Morphy’s career lasted only a few years and yet he managed to defeat dfeense best chess players of his time. I bet if Fischer had played the Chigorin, Kasparov would have played it too — with good results.

Morozevich did write a book on it – after he stopped playing it. I would play 8. Although the KID almost certainly has more strategic depth than the Chigorin. Become a member at Chess. A Black Repertoire against Offbeat Openings. Blow the whistle and inform an administrator. Nf3 chigroin, can you guess what should Black play?

Chigorin Defense – Wikipedia

Has Chigorin been ‘refuted’ at the top level at least for now? He can convey chess ideas, especially opening repertoires in a very funny, and pragmatic way. It’s sharp and tricky, has quite a good record, and I suspect many players don’t have any idea what to do against it. What you say about the Budapest being easier to learn may well be true.

D07: Queen’s Gambit Declined, Chigorin defence

His main and only concern is to finish his development as quickly as possible and hopefully start an attack against the White King whether it is hiding on the King’s side, Queen’s side or the center. The first part of the DVD is dedicated to positions which occur after White forces the Black queen out in the middle of the field with 3.


No spamming, advertising, or duplicating posts. Please observe our posting guidelines: I would rather play the black side anyway. The fact that few GMs play it today does not degense much.

In the next game after a modest move 3. This opening is usually not played among chess grandmasters, only grandmaster Alexander Morozevich plays it and has written a book about it.

The Tactical Chigorin, a Review

As always Williams tries to teach openings, which make our chess spicy, and attacking, because chess can be romantic also in this computer age! I am just curious, I will still play the Chigorin. For example in the introductory video he says: Williams over and over tries to teach us gambit play. But it’s like everyone thinks you can then automatically exploit that advantage, the bishops will do it by themselves.

Would you ever guess an opening can teach you the mastery over some particular pieces?

Williams is really good in passing the ideas behind the opening, and this is what I’m looking for in chess books, and often I don’t find it. For example Williams explains the important squares one should occupy, or the diagonals one should control, and what is the plan in some pawn structures. Chiforin is one of the most notorious GMs, and event commentators.

This is the reason why we need to study chess openings, not because we hope to win a game in ten moves, but because chess deffnse will unlock our chess minds to a wealth of ideas which we didn’t have before. After the moves 1. It is only up to us to take this idea, and make it happen in reality, like the hypermodern movement created a wealth of ideas in chess in hcigorin first years of the last century.

By the way, in my Megabase soon to become Megabasebecause I already acquired the update! Most successful opening for Black. I think it means the Chigorin could be the perfect weapon at club level. No obscene, racist, sexist, or profane language. But again, it would have probably happened with any other opening too.


Actually, speaking of that Kasparov game, it’s interesting to see the huge burst in popularity for the move 7. I believe so, and GM Williams also points it out. Bxc3 as in the game Topalov vs Morozevich, Seriously, everyone ‘knows’ that a bishop pair with an open centre should constitute an advantage. Articles with short description. Strange that such a natural move could be so unpopular until Kasparov’s game with Ivanchuk. Before then it had only been played a handful of times, including this win by Rubinstein Rubinstein vs Tartakower, Because the Chigorin is an unusual defense, the theory of this opening is not as well developed as that for more popular openings.

I believe that move guarantees black a full share of the chances. This opening is ideal for the type of player who strives for an unconvential yet attacking game right from the start.

In the Chigorin Black does not support the center pawn at d5 which is attacked, but developes a knight instead.

A possible combo for the black player who plays Chigorin against 1. Some grandmaster once said that whoever is afraid of an IQP shouldn’t play chess!

Kasparov has said something similar to the Chigorin being ridiculous, but objectively it is hardly less sound than the King’s Indian. Incidentally, Finegold just opened his own chess chhigorin in Atlanta, Georgia.
