About this item
Mikhail Chigorin (1850-1908), the first great Russian chess master, belongs to that select group of exceptionally strong players who did not quite succeed in winning the world championship. He remains universally admired for his creative and courageous style of play and is still remembered for his contributions to opening theory. This is a hugely expanded second edition of the book published in 1987. Over two hundred extra games have been included, annotated by Chigorin and his contemporaries, in addition to more modern grandmasters. The biographical part has been extended with hundreds of pages of material depicting Chigorin’s turbulent life.
