   Mar-02-09 Scotch Game (C45) (replies)
Chigorin: In Starting Out: The Scotch Game John Emms says of 10.h4: "...I certainly can't find an easy path to equality for Black." The example game given is Smeets-Timman 2002. It doesn't appear to be in the CG database unfortunately. The next few moves in the game were: 10.h4 ♗g7 ...
   Feb-20-09 Petrov Defense (C42) (replies)
Chigorin: <FiveofSwords: I think it is also interesting to note that in most of the lines where the knight returns to f6, it becomes a transposition to a queen's gambit accepted.> Interesting. Could you give some examples? I was unaware of the transposition.
   Feb-18-09 Kamsky vs Topalov, 2009 (replies)
Chigorin: <HolyKnight: Also if you are going to play 1.e4 in a match, it's like hello, study the crap out of the Berlin Ruy, Petroff and maybe Najdorf.> Yes, technically the opening here is a Berlin, but it's the Classical (4...Bc5) which has almost nothing in common with 4...Nxe4. ...
   Feb-18-09 Topalov - Kamsky Candidates Final (2009) (replies)
Chigorin: <The Rocket: he also got completely owned by kasparov 6-1 in the final.> Kasparov is the best player in the history of chess (only a couple of silly Fischer fans would dispute this). If losing badly to the best player ever disqualifies you from being a superstar then very few
   May-21-08 Queen's Gambit Declined, Tarrasch (D32) (replies)
Chigorin: I play the Tarrasch and have the book. As far as the book goes I think it is very good. It attempts to cover everything White can throw at you other than 1.e4. In other words 1.c4, 1.Nf3 etc. are covered. The Tarrasch coverage is great. Both ideas and theory are covered. There is ...
   May-15-08 Evans Gambit (C51) (replies)
Chigorin: You'll have to forgive me guys. The mistake is all mine. You see I had intended to post a comment on a site dedicated to chess games and only ended up here at by mistake!
   Sep-26-07 Anand vs Morozevich, 2007 (replies)
Chigorin: <bravado1> Are you forgetting that Moro beat Kramnik, the favorite coming in, on Sunday? Moro has his ups and downs, but he can be quite dangerous. As for requesting the presence of Adams, I take it you are a big fan of the short draws.
   Sep-22-07 Sicilian, Alapin (B22) (replies)
Chigorin: <WannaBe> After 1. e4 c5 2. c3 ♘f6 3. e5 ♘d5 4. d4 cxd4 5. cxd4 e6 6. ♘f3 d6 7. ♗c4 ♘c6, the move 8.♗xd5?! simply gives up the Two Bishops in an open position, not generally a good idea (see: S Rosenthal vs Steinitz, 1873 ; V Makogonov vs ...
   Sep-11-07 World Championship Tournament (2007) (replies)
Chigorin: <dx9293: [...] Karpov, Kramnik, Anand, Leko, plus some others, don't seem to be pricks like Kasparov.> Karpov not a prick? Are we thinking of the same guy?
   Feb-22-07 Jeremy Silman (replies)
Chigorin: IT- I couldn't say exactly how many points in how many days because I was studying other things as well at the time! I am probably playing at about the 1700 level now and was probably around 1400 before doing this, though some of that gain may be due to other study. I am not ...
