The Chigorin Defence According to Morozevich
An uncommonly played defense to the Queen's Gambit , it begins with the moves:. The Chigorin Defense violates several classical principles: Black does not maintain the center pawn at d5, the c-pawn is blocked, and Black must be willing to trade a bishop for a knight. In return Black gets quick development and piece pressure on the center. Although opening assessments change as improvements are found for each side, the Chigorin is generally considered playable for Black and it is useful as a surprise weapon against the Queen's Gambit. Alexander Morozevich is perhaps the only modern grandmaster who regularly plays the Chigorin Defense, although in the s, Vasily Smyslov did employ the opening against Garry Kasparov. Morozevich has also published a book on the Chigorin Defence,  in which he gives both a theoretical and a personal view on the opening. Because the Chigorin is an unusual defense, the theory of this opening is not as well developed as that for more popular openings.
The Tactical Chigorin, a Review
Williams is one of the most notorious GMs, and event commentators. He is not one of the top ten players in the world, but he has a gift like the best players on the planet. He can convey chess ideas, especially opening repertoires in a very funny, and pragmatic way. This is what we want from the finest teacher, to make the burden of learning the material bearable, and most of all to be able to use those ideas as soon as possible.
