The Chigorin Bible

A Classic Defense to the Ruy Lopez

Product Code: B0034TH

Alternative Views:


The Chigorin Variation is one of the oldest variations of the Ruy Lopez, ‘invented’ at the Monte Carlo tournament in 1902 by Carl Schlechter in his game versus Siegbert Tarrasch. The strategic part of the book consists of thirty-two fully-annotated games divided into five chapters, with the fifth chapter divided into four subchapters. The Chigorin Variation is rich in ideas which can be used in a range of middlegame positions arising from different variations. 

Understanding the strategic ideas of this complex variation is also a middlegame improvement ‘tool’ and a must for anyone wanting to take his or her chess to the next level. 

This ‘Chigorin bible’ aims to be the ultimate improvement ‘tool’ for club and tournament players in the variation. The first part provides the reader with a good understanding of general plans and strategic concepts and the second part provides direct theoretical knowledge.
