    In hardly any other opening does the second player get so many chances for an early initiative as in the Chigorin Defense 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6. Among its practitioners are A. Morozevich and I. Miladinovic, as well as various other strong grandmasters. Nevertheless, for a long time the Chigorin Defense had a dubious reputation. Only the success of the players just mentioned, combined with the appearance of the first German edition of this book in 2001 gradually changed this. This now thoroughly updated essential work on the Chigorin offers 115 games scrutinised in detail, explains all the strategic principles and therefore creates a solid theoretical basis for the defense. The author is a Ukrainian IM who now lives in Stuttgart / Germany. This book founded his reputation as a respected theoretician. “The contents are first-class and the author has put a tremendous amount of work into the book. Material is drawn from nearly all possible sources and the author has added an abundance of original analysis, improvements, and sug-gestions of his own. ” (Carsten Hansen on Chesscafe, Checkpoint May 2005) “It will not only become the Chigorin Defense bible for many years to come, but it establishes the Chigorin as a sound defense deserving respect.” (John Watson, The Week in Chess, Book Reviews # 46)

    The Colle-Koltanowski System with d4, Nf3, e3, Bd3, c3, 0-0, Nbd2 is very popular among club players. White builds up a kind of & bdquo; fortress & ldquo ;, but at the same time prepares to hand out some blows himself, e.g. the typical bishop sacrifice on h7. In other cases he can rely on the characteristic queenside pawn majority and go for the endgame. This is a book about a typical & bdquo; amateur opening & ldquo ;, but nevertheless Bronznik refuses to go for the transfigured & ldquo; Winning with & ldquo; approach. He does a very thorough research and shows that, in fact, in many lines the best moves are still untested - when many believe that in our computer age everything can be found in the omniscient databases. Fascinating are Bronznik & rsquo; s analysis of the various sacrifices on the kingside (Bxh7 +, Bxh6 and so on), clear and fundamental is his explanation of the positional themes. Due to the blend of basic things with advanced material this book should be useful for average players, as well as for masters. Originating from Ukraine and now living in Stuttgart (Germany), IM Valerij Bronznik is working as a chess teacher. & Nbsp; His first book about the Chigorin Defense (published in German language in 2001) was much acclaimed. But especially in terms of teaching methods this one is even better
