Product Description

The Chigorin Defense to the Queen's Gambit is an aggressive alternative to the passive defenses commonly seen in the tournament arena. Mikhail Chigorin's ideas have been put to good use by Lasker, Tartakower, Smyslov, Korchnoi, and Miles, while even Capablanca and Alekhine have wandered into its transpositional paths. Black is willing to part with the bishop pair early in the game in return for strong counterplay with his active knights supporting pawn advances in the center. The opening has understandably enjoyed renewed popularity in the past few years.
