Mikhail Ivanovich Chigorin, (12 November 1850 (31 October old style), St.-Petersburg, Russia – 25 January 1908, Lublin, Poland) was a leading Russian chess player. He served as a major source of inspiration for the “Soviet school of chess”, which dominated the chess world in the middle and latter parts of the 20th century.

Through his original talent, lively games and prolific teachings, many Russians regard Mikhail Chigorin as the founder of their ‘School of Chess’, later to become known as the Soviet School of Chess. Overshadowed to some extent in the 1920s by the exciting new theories of the hypermodern movement, Chigorin’s influence nevertheless demands a prominent and permanent place in the Soviet chess hegemony of the 20th century.

Chigorin has several chess openings or variations of openings named after him, the two most important being the Chigorin Variation of the Ruy Lopez (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.O-O Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.c3 O-O 9.h3 Na5) and the Chigorin Defence to the Queen’s Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nc6). Whilst the former has remained popular through the 1900s, the latter struggled to attract a great many devotees until relatively recently. Igor Miladinović has used the Chigorin Defence with great regularity, but its current revival owes much to the efforts of Alexander Morozevich, who has championed the opening both in play and in his book – The Chigorin Defence According To Morozevich (published 2007).
