DE In hardly any other opening does the second player get so many chances for an early initiative as in the Chigorin Defence 1. Among its practitioners are A. Morozevich and I. Miladinovic, as well as various other strong grandmasters. Nevertheless, for a long time the Chigorin Defence 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 gradually changed this.

May Fanacas : But we are going a little off topic here :P i personally do not use the chigorin defence i most of the time use the klassikel queens gambit declined but it looks intresting to look in.
If so what line is considered to be the strongest for white? I am just curious, I will still play the Chigorin. Morozevich did write a book on it - after he stopped playing it. Does anyone know particular games or lines which sent it back into slumber? Also - Other books on it, please? Nc6 Repertoire books. The fact that few GMs play it today does not mean much. One main important thing with the Chigorin is that is results in position quite unique compared to other openings: emphasize on the knights and piece play; putting pieces in front of the pawns, instead of pushing pawns and putting pieces behind them.
This does not mean the the opening is unsound. I bet if Fischer had played the Chigorin, Kasparov would have played it too -- with good results.
A possible combo for the black player who plays Chigorin against 1. Also something of a surprise, and also not an unsound opening. Although the KID almost certainly has more strategic depth than the Chigorin.
