Welcome


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

    How Bobby Fischer battled the Sicilian - Adrian Mikhalchishin

    Bobby Fischer was a devoted Sicilian player. But the American chess genius and 11th World Champion was also a devoted 1.e4 (“Best by test” as he said) player, and his results against the Sicilian are remarkable. In almost all variations he came up with new ideas and developed systems of his own — such as 6.Bc4 (one of his pet moves) against the Najdorf, and the Rauzer.

    There are a number of good Anti-Sicilian options out there, however I believe the 2.b3 Sicilian to be one of the most overlooked and underrated systems available to White. This modest move came back to the fore as a legitimate Anti-Sicilian weapon when none other than Vladimir Kramnik used it in a few games to frustrate his Sicilian diehard opponents.

    DOWNLOAD - The Surprising Sicilian! - Shock the Opposition with an early ...Qb6 - Andrew Martin
    Catalog Code: E-WIN0533CB

    In the modern game, a player has to be ready to play almost any opening variation at short notice. The plan is to interrupt the preparation of the opponent at every turn. A knowledge of dynamic and slightly unusual lines could well score many,many points for the resourceful player. The Kveinys Variation : 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Qb6! is surprisingly little-played, yet gives Black excellent chances and on this new ChessBase DVD, Andrew Martin explains how the system works. For the Master, we have a surprise weapon which players of the calibre of Svidler, Judit Polgar and Kveinys have used to defeat tough opposition. For the club player, where preparation is sketchy, we have a line which asks questions of the opponent right at the beginning of the game and creates immediate pressure on White to find good moves. That is the way to win! Perhaps the Kveinys variation will become more popular in the future. It does not deserve to be a comparatively rare sideline.

    The Surprising Sicilian! - Shock the Opposition with an early ...Qb6 - Andrew Martin
    Catalog Code: WIN0533CB

    In the modern game, a player has to be ready to play almost any opening variation at short notice. The plan is to interrupt the preparation of the opponent at every turn. A knowledge of dynamic and slightly unusual lines could well score many,many points for the resourceful player. The Kveinys Variation : 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Qb6! is surprisingly little-played, yet gives Black excellent chances and on this new ChessBase DVD, Andrew Martin explains how the system works. For the Master, we have a surprise weapon which players of the calibre of Svidler, Judit Polgar and Kveinys have used to defeat tough opposition. For the club player, where preparation is sketchy, we have a line which asks questions of the opponent right at the beginning of the game and creates immediate pressure on White to find good moves. That is the way to win! Perhaps the Kveinys variation will become more popular in the future. It does not deserve to be a comparatively rare sideline.

    The Najdorf in Black and White

    In many ways, the Najdorf Sicilian is the ideal defense against 1.e4 - aggressive and leading to creative and exciting play, allowing Black to play for a win and yet unquestionably sound. Despite the Najdorf's great popularity and reputation as a theoretical labyrinth, Bryan Smith believes it is possible to play it "by the light of nature," with experience providing a guide. The twenty-nine annotated games in this book were carefully selected for their instructional value, their theoretical relevance, and - most of all - their aesthetic appeal.
