More info

The Sicilian Defence is the most widely played chess opening, both at club level as well as among top grandmasters. Since Black gets dynamic play in almost all variations, Black players of all levels will probably continue to play the Sicilian for a long time to come.

It has been difficult for White to obtain any advantage in Sicilian sidelines, and this book therefore presents a complete repertoire for White in the most important main lines: the Open Sicilians with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3. Each variation is presented with its main ideas, its typical tactics and strategies, and with instructive games. The authors always summarize the most important features.

PRAISE FOR THE ORIGINAL 2009 EDITION:

Arne Moll, ChessVibes:
“A total knockout.”

John Anderson, British Correspondence Chess Association:
“Bang up-to-date and very user-friendly.”

Grandmaster Glenn Flear:
“Impressive and highly recommended.”
