Tigran Gorgiev, Maestro of Practical Studies: 100 short endgame studies
by Sergei Tkachenko
Tigran Gorgiev (1910-1976) was one of the Soviet Union’s best endgame
study composers. In his lifetime he produced around 400 studies and
wrote three books and 101 articles with chess compositions. The vast
majority of his endgame studies are of a practical nature, meaning
that the positions presented could have arisen in over-the-board play.
This makes them particularly useful to study for practical players as
well as study fans.
Sergei Tkachenko, a member of the Ukrainian team that won the 5th
World Chess Composition Tournament in 1997 and which came second in
2000, 2004, 2013, and 2017, has selected his 100 favorite Tigran
Gorgiev studies, revising some of them and providing explanations
suitable for less experienced solvers. There are no more than six
moves in most solutions, so experienced chess players can analyze the
positions directly from the diagrams.
