Only the very best dared to play for a win against Tigran Petrosian. The 9th World Champion was extremely difficult to beat because his defensive techniques were virtually unmatched. In the rare case that someone managed to bring him into difficulties they ran a serious risk of having to face a vicious counterattack.

Former Russian Champion Alexey Bezgodov explains to a wide range of players how they can employ the skills of ‘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. Contrary to what many chess fans think, the Armenian genius was a highly dynamic defender!

This book aims to help amateur players improve the standard of their defensive play. In many training programs, a serious 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. Defend Like Petrosian points the way to creative solutions and will help you save lots of points.
