Modernized - The Open Sicilian

Product Code: B0086OB

Description

IM Zhanibek Amanov of Kazakhstan and FM Kostya Kavutskiy of Los Angeles present a repertoire vs. the Sicilian Defense, one of the most complex and powerful defenses available to Black, and the choice of many top players.

.
The critical test is to attack it directly with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 followed by 3.d4, the Open Sicilian.

.

The dynamics of the resulting positions are such that White will get a lead in development while Black will have an extra central pawn. This leads to very sharp middlegames.

.

The main goal in choosing lines was to reach positions with well-defined plans for both sides, then illustrate how to handle a typical middlegame in each variation through the use of well-chosen instructive games.

.

The choices against the most frequently seen Sicilians are:

The Najdorf: 6.h3
The Kan and Taimanov: 6.g3
The Classical: 6.Bc4
The Dragon: 9.O-O-O
The Accelerated Dragon: Maróczy Bind
The Sveshnikov: 9.Nd5

.

The purpose of this book is not only to provide a complete repertoire for the White side of the Open Sicilian, but also to ingrain a number of thematic positional and tactical motifs as well.
