Easy Guide to the Sveshnikov Sicilian - Jacob Aagaard

Easy Guide to the Sveshnikov Sicilian
  • Publisher: Everyman Chess

  • Published: 2000/07

  • Edition: Paperback

  • ISBN: 1857442806


All chess players need a reliable defense to 1.e4, preferably one that is fun to play and provides real winning chances. The Sveshnikov Sicilian fits the bill perfectly. Black's active piece-play compensates for his damaged pawn-structure, making for an exciting battle. To play the Sveshnikov well requires a good understanding of the themes, and a moderate amount of concrete knowledge. This Easy Guide supplies just that. Once you have read this book you will be ready to start playing and winning with the Sveshnikov. This guide, which is part of Everyman's Easy Guide series, includes enough information and understanding to enable the reader to play the Sveshnikov with confidence. It provides a sound and dynamic system, supported at the highest levels by Kramnik and Shirov and a complete repertoire for Black in the mainline Sicilian. (5 3/4 x 8 1/4, 144 pages, diagrams)

Jacob Aagaard is a young International Master from Denmark who has carved out a deserved reputation as a diligent and outspoken chess author. His earlier opening manuals, such as Dutch Stonewall and Easy Guide to the Sveshnikov Sicilian, have been widely admired for the clarity of their approach.
