How is this course going to help me?
Every club player knows that in the 1.d4 openings, the c-pawn should be used to attack or defend the central pawn.
In this course, GM Lemos shows you how to play against the most popular variation played against the Chigorin Defense (1.d4 d5 2.c4 Cc6!) at Club Level.
When playing with the Black pieces, you have the opportunity to choose the type of game you want. Why not decide for something your opponents won’t be familiar with?
The Chigorin Defense has many strong points that make it a must for any chess player willing to improve his tournament results:
Surprise from move 2.
After d4 d5 2.c4, White is surely well prepared for 2…e6 or 2…c6. But be prepared to his open-wide eyes while you play 2….Nc6!
Simple Clear-cut Strategies.
GM Lemos shows how to play every pawn structure that arises after the Chigorin, exploring the best plans, where to move your pieces and which pieces to exchange – A must-know to improve your positional understanding too!
The Chigorin is largely based on quick development, which will give you amazing tactics from the beginning of the game and big attacking opportunities in the middlegame. No matter where White Castles.
GM Lemos will also walk you through the forcing variation that destroys White’s position if he plays the most natural move – only a master will know why 8.Nf3 is a mistake and why the ridiculous looking 8.Ne2 is the correct move (sealing the Bf1!)
This is an opening that can be learned in a weekend and that will give you lots of points during all your chess career!
