    CLEARANCE - Beating the Sicilian Defense Chameleon Variation
    Catalog Code: CB0049CD

    The title is to make it strong and clear it is written from the White side. You do not have to wade through page after page, suggestion after suggestion, to find the best White continuations. The analysis will show you how to get an advantage with White by getting you through the opening against all Black variations. White plays 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 followed by 3.Ne2, with the flexible option to break through with d4 if desired.

    CLEARANCE - 2. c3 vs the Sicilian and the Smith Morra Gambit
    Catalog Code: CB0050CD

    Part One:1.e4 c5 2.c3 has gained a wide following through the years. White enjoys the central space advantage conferred by a classical pawn center. With rapid piece development, White will get the advantage against anything Black can play. Part Two: 1.e4 c5 2.d4 exd4 3.c3 and Black declines with 3..Nf6, or 3..d3, or 3..d5. We show you how one system transposes into another and when it can't. In all cases, White will obtain promising vistas for dynamic play.

    CLEARANCE - New Sicilian Gambits
    Catalog Code: CB0025CD

    GM Soltis: ''If white gets to attack in the Sicilian Defense anyway, why should he offer a pawn or two for the privilege? The answer is that black gets to counterplay in the Sicilian and his counterplay is usually as good as white's. That, in fact, is what makes the Sicilian popular. There are plenty of familiar Sicilian gambits(like the Smith Morra and Wing, which this book doesn't even cover). But in the last few years, a number of new ideas arising out of positional variations, have been discovered and found to pack a wallop for white''. Here are six new white gambits against the Sicilian that the reader will have to attempt to destroy black!

    CLEARANCE - Grand Prix Attack
    Catalog Code: CB0026CD

    When faced with the Sicilian Defense, you have to make the choice to either wade through a maze of variations in the main line or diverge early into a relatively lesser known system. The early advance of white's f-pawn fits this objective perfectly. White gains more space in the center and kingside with 2.f4, forming the basis for lasting pressure and often leading to violent attacks against the black kingside. After 1.e4 c5 2.f4, this variation fell out of fashion int he early 90's due to 2..d5. But take heart! Smith and Hall show that this variation still has some venom!

    CLEARANCE - A Complete Guide to the Grivas Sicilian
    4... Qb6 - A Subtle and Reliable System for Black Explained in Detail
    Catalog Code: B0052GB

    This book is in every way a definitive guide: Efstratios Grivas provides the inside story on a variation of the Sicilian Defence that he has worked for more than 20 years to perfect, and which rightly bears his name. The Grivas Sicilian (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Qb6) has proved itself sound and reliable in practice, but is also far less well investigated than most Sicilian systems.

Sicilian Defense

The Sicilian Defense, a chess opening that begins with the moves 1. e4 c5, is one of the most popular and highest scoring Black responses to the King's Pawn Opening - 1. e4. With 1... c5, Black asserts control over the critical d4 square and launches an aggressive counter-attack to seize control of the center of the chess board. By choosing to play the Sicilian Defense, Black is willing to offer White both the initiative of the Kingside and an advantage in piece development opportunities in exchange for an advanced Queenside pawn and a spatial advantage that often lead to flank attacks. 

Popular Variations of the Sicilian Defense: Najdorf Sicilian, Schveshnikov Sicilian, Scheveningen Sicilian

Practitioners of the Sicilian Defense: Bobby Fischer, Garry Kasparov, Mikhail TalViswanathan Anand, Boris Gelfand and Alexei Shirov
