Imbalances and the Exciting Chigorin Defense –

I disagree rather strongly with Jeremy Silman’s review, but I don’t have time right now to go into details. My basic disagreement is Silman’s description of the book as being full of Morozevich’s detailed analysis.

I will respond more fully with examples when I have time. I give the book about 1. There is a fair coverage in a free ebook at Jeremy Silman’s, it seems surprisingly useful material Very through coverage http: I have bought the book and have been mostly disappointed.

The notes to the games are interesting, but Morozevich often does not assess the opening at all. There are many cases in which the model game has absolutely no comments on a succession of moves such as movesor even in some cases.

Morozevic really isn’t a way to instruct players how to play the opening so much as a collection of some interesting games. Many of the games chigorni played in suboptimal conditions such as blindfold games or internet games.


The tactics are interesting, but more entertaining than pedagogical. I have the book on order. While I am already fairly certain that follow Markovich’s advice and stick with 1. Nc6 if Moro shows me the way.

Either way, I’m fairly sure it will be a worthwhile addition. I’ll let you know in a month or so what I really think of the book! Markovich God Member Offline Posts: I had a small look at this in the shop the other day. He just seems to think the opening’s rubbish, judging from the 3 Nc3 chapter. The Great Oz has spoken!

Bonsai God Member Offline Posts: I’m guessing he means this game: Could you tell me what exactly you mean with Karpov-Milov line?

I played the Chigorin for some years, but have not come across that name. This is quite a big omission as this line is playable for Black imo.

The Tactical Chigorin, a Review

Defemce God Member Offline Posts: Does anyone have the table of contents for the book? Don’t check me with no lightweight stuff. I don’t have the table of contents but would advise people to consider getting the English language version of Bronziks book on the Chigorin rather than this.

Moro says that he does not cover the line because he accirding its not good which is fair enough, but the least he could do is show why he thinks its not good rather than just omit it entirely. Nc6 although their coverage of it wasnt great in one of the critical lines. One would also have to wonder how much of this book Morozevich actually wrote as opposed to Barsky.

For me Bronziks is still the best book on the Chig. Please Login or Register.

Discussion forum for ChessPublishing. Well, I sometimes feel like the Voice of Tarrasch in this forum, but I don’t think I’ll reconsider my preference for 1. Bxf3 as “a serious alternative to Rxg7 As a small sideline it is inside the book: I’m not so sure. In my view Bronznik’s book has more theory but Morozevich’s book is more up-to-date and has better axcording.
