Easy Guide to the Bb5 Sicilian - Steffen Pedersen

Easy Guide to the Bb5 Sicilian
  • Publisher: Everyman Chess

  • Published: 1999/07

  • Edition: Paperback

  • ISBN: 185744230X


All players who open with 1.e4 need a good weapon against the Sicilian. The Open Sicilian demands a lifetime of study, while other systems tend to be positionally dubious or rather tame. The Bb5 line is the exception. It is completely logical and has real practical sting, and can be played confidently provided you have a good understanding of its ideas and a moderate amount of specific knowledge. This Easy Guide supplies just that. Once you have read this book you will be ready to start playing and winning with Bb5. Covers both the Rossolimo and Moscow (3.Bb5+) Variations. These sound but dynamic lines have recently been infused with new ideas. Two powerful systems for White against the Sicilian Defence. Everyman's Easy Guide series represents a new approach to chess openings books, just enough detail and just enough explanation to enable readers to play an opening with confidence, without months of memorizing theory, the easy way to master a chess opening.

International Master Steffen Pedersen is a young player from Denmark who first attained notoriety by scoring a grandmaster norm when he was 16. He has earned a reputation as a fine writer, whose work on the Dutch Defence has been especially praised.
