My First Ever Instructional Video.

An Instructional Video With Some Novel Ideas On Playing Against the Chigorin Defense.

 

This is my first effort at providing some instruction and insight on how to play against the ever aggressive, Chigorin Defense.

To provide a few tips...an early g3, where white can fianchetto his king's bishop is a solid concept. It opens up the opportunity for black to capture the pawn on c4, but if black happens to take the pawn, black will accentuate the activity and strength of white's king bishop.

This is just the first concept I wanted to introduce. Other ideas you can hear presented in the video, as well as the direction I was leaning with the moves I was making.
