More info

In Sicilian Attacks, Grandmaster Yuri Yakovich, who has more than thirty years of experience with complex Sicilian systems, analyses the Najdorf, the Scheveningen, the Dragon, the Taimanov and the Richter-Rauzer Variations. 

He teaches how their pawn structures dictate typical methods of attack for White, but he also gives the best defending techniques for Black.

This book provides cutting-edge analysis full of original ideas, but also contains useful verbal guidelines to help you to recognize typical Sicilian plans and counterplans. An abundance of highly instructive games illustrate the various strategic and tactical themes. At the end of each chapter you will find practical conclusions.

Yuri Yakovich is a highly esteemed chess trainer and a wellknown grandmaster from Samara, Russia, who has won a number of strong tournaments such as San Antonio 1999. Yakovich has written two opening books: ‘The Complete Sveshnikov Sicilian’ and ‘Play the 4 f3 Nimzo-Indian’. 

GM Sergey Rublevsky, 2005 Russian Chess Champion: 
"A brilliant middlegame textbook"

Richard Vedder, Schakers.info:
"This book deals with middlegame situations that may arise after the opening; situations that are dependent on pawn structures (..) A feast of sacrifices!"

Ross Jackson, New Zealand Chess Magazine:
"Both an opening guide and a masterpiece of middlegame exposition."

Ian Marks, Chess Scotland:
"Great stuff, essential reading if you find yourself on either side of the Sicilian and recommended even if you don't."

Carsten Hansen, ChessCafe:
"This book is really, really good. And to boot, the book is very attractively priced. For the chess student who wants to understand the sharp Open Sicilians better, this book is an excellent purchase and will provide a mountain of study material that is well-chosen, well-analyzed and well-explained."
