Alexei Bezgodov

What You Can Learn from Tigran Petrosian's Extraordinary Defensive Skills

Sample pages (pdf)

Contrary to what many think, Tigran Petrosian was a highly dynamic defender! In the rare case that someone managed to bring him into difficulties, they ran a serious risk of having to face a vicious counterattack. They discovered the other Petrosian: fearless and creative.

Former Russian Champion Alexey Bezgodov explains to a wide range of players what they can learn from "the Tiger": how to deal with pressure, how to anticipate threats or march your king out of danger even if it feels you are entering a minefield. That you should not hesitate to give up an exchange or spoil your own pawn structure if the position calls for it. How to find unlikely decoys and start a counterattack. An eye-opening and very instructive book.

This book aims to help amateur players improve the standard of their defensive play. In many training programs an analysis of the art of defence is lacking. That explains why most club players are much better at attacking than at coping with adversity and difficult positions.

Published 2020, softback, 269 pages.
