Chess 101 - Tchigorin Defense

(Photo taken from The Soviet School of Chess by Kotov and Yudovich, page 17.)

Happy July 4th!!! I recently started to look into this defence (1. d4 d5 2. c4 Nc6) and found a video on YouTube which talks about this opening. Unfortunately he just goes over variations, and doesn't make many comments, but it's a handy video if you wanna learn the opening. The video was posted on YouTube by GamesForLifeInc. Boris Kogan wrote an article regarding the opening in Chess Life magazine, March 1984.
