Escape the over-analyzed by-ways of the Indian defenses, with this surprising chess opening for Black: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6. Black almost contemptuously ignores White's moves 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 recently renovated the Chigorin to make it a fully respectable member in the family of 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.
