    Book Description

    It is not difficult to understand why the Alapin Sicilian is such a popular opening with amateur and professional chess players all over the world. Against Black’s most dangerous reply to 1.e4 it simply offers everything you need if you are looking for a reliable scheme that does not take much time to learn.

    It could even be argued that 2.c3 is the most logical response to the Sicilian Defence. White aims at creating a strong pawn centre and obtains an easily manageable middlegame. Meanwhile:

    White has to study only a few set-ups, since Black has basically only two good replies – White is very solid The system can be learned quickly, since the positions are generally less complicated than in many other Sicilian lines Theory doesn’t develop quickly, so maintaining your knowledge is fairly simple Black has to take big risks in order to win


    The Complete c3 Sicilian brings you the basic ideas, the plans, the tactical tricks and the latest developments from recent grandmaster practice. With hundreds of games, accessibly explained, and many tests, it contains as a special feature a listing of ’opening catastrophes’ to be avoided or exploited.

    Universally recognized as the world’s greatest Alapin expert, Evgeny Sveshnikov has written the most comprehensive guide ever: a wellstructured book, indispensable for masters and yet easily accessible for club players.

    • EBOOK - The Sniper
      Play ...g6, ....Bg7 and ...c5!
      The Sniper is a dynamic and universal opening weapon for Black which can be used against all mainline openings. Black's system of development with ...g6 and ...Bg7 initially allows White to occupy the centre but, in true hypermodern style, Black strikes back immediately with ...c5. The Sniper can lead to original or barely-known positions in which Black can strive for the initiative. It's also rich in move-order possibilities, with potential transpositions into Sicilian, King's Indian or Benko-type positions.
