Three games in 15 minutes! The Chigorin is spicier than a chili pepper. GM Finegold shows how he uses this occasional weapon to get imbalanced positions against lower-rated foes. You'll learn some theory, some important traps, and some move-order subtleties in case you adopt the Chigorin into your arsenal. Oh, you'll also see some Chigorin chagrin. Warning: some GMs can beat you in 10 moves if you're not careful.
