CLEARANCE - Inside Chess Opening Novelties - Sicilian Alapin

Product Code: CB0053RB

Alternative Views:


The Sicilian Alapin, or the c3-Sicilian, is an early attempt by the player of the white pieces to avoid the seriously over-studied lines of the Open Sicilian. In this ICON, International Master John Donaldson shows why the Alapin has gained so much international attention, and why some very strong players have added it to their repertoire. 

Recent games show that even at the highest levels of play, gaining equality against the Alapin is no trivial matter. The variety of plans and structures available to the first player make this an excellent weapon for club players who can specialize in positions that they know much better than their hapless opponents.

ICONs are the latest in chess opening theory, brought to you by International Chess Enterprises, Inc., the same people that publish Inside Chess magazine.
