Sveshnikov Vs the Anti-Sicilians


Product Description
Product Details


Sicilian players looking for a one volume work dedicated to combating anti-Sicilian variations will find 'Sveshnikov vs.the Anti-Sicilians: A Complete Repertoire' just the thing they need. -- John Donaldson, International master, International Master Unlike some opening books, the author has shied away from the extensive (excessive?) use of game segments. He has preferred a balance between the latest ideas, classic themes and practical middlegame play. Naturally the key theoretical aspects are highlighted, but he also looks at important moments whenever they occur. There are encounters from just a few months ago, but Sveshnikov often resorts to the use of classic games to illustrate themes. -- Grandmaster Glenn Flear, author of Starting Out: Open Games I do certainly consider it to be all you need against the rarer lines (i.e. 2.Na3; 2.b4; 2.f4; 2.b3 etc.) and enough to get you started on the frequently played (Alapin and Grand Prix)lines. I am pleased with this book and consider it to be an important part of my preparation as I do employ the Sicilian as my main weapon against 1.e4. -- Chris Wainscott Sveshnikov is a pugnacious and self-assured writer, not in the least afraid of courting controversy. An interesting (if idiosyncratic) set of responses to some key Anti-Sicilian lines. -- John Hartmann An eye-catching, highly readable, club level repertoire book on the Anti-Sicilians. It does not matter what White plays after the move 1.c5, the master of attack comes with an excellent answer Elburg Chess Reviews I would recommend this book to any player who wishes to update their opening repertoire. -- Gary Lane, International Master CHESS Magazine
