Oh - I see at the end of the video the computer does say "Bxc3" and makes the move Bxc3. I just didn't go all the way to the very end since I stopped when I caught the discrepancy.
In one of my books it says that although Tchigorin had great results with it, there are now refutations giving White a better game. That being said - I have a question:
@ 2:16 on the video, Before White develops his QN, his 3rd option is to exchange w/ 1. cxd4 Qxd5 2. e3 e5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. Bd2 Bxc3 -THEN @ 2:32 it says "bxc3" BUT - the Bishop actually takes c3. Am I correct to assume the actual move is 5. Bxc3 (as shown) Which, after examining, I would make, or should it be 5. bxc3? (as spoken.)
We would be talking about the difference of a 1/2 open b file or a 1/2 open c file, either way, White still maintains 2 Pawn islands, but I believe White looks better after 5. Bxc3.
I looked up several games where Morozevich used this. He did rock with it!
Good choice for opening review. Use to play this with success back in the day.One of my favorite players Alexander Morozevich use to rock this.
Thanks Reshevskys, for your thougthful comment.
Thanks for the post! I like to review his games. Bobby Fischer said of Tchigorin that he was the first great Russian player and one of the last of the Romantic School. At times he would continue playing a bad line even after it was refuted. I may try this defense in a few games to see what happens. I have an interesting game of his against Caro. It's at www.chess.com/blog/reshevskys_revenge and it's Pt. 10 of my Fischer's Top 20 Best Players List, or in the FORUM under my post Caro Needs Help From Kann
