In the last decade, no single opening has received as much attention as the Sveshnikov variation of the Sicilian defence. The Sveshnikov, which was developed in the 70's, is nowadays seen as one of the most dynamic and ambitious replies to white's first move 1.e4.

In contrary to conservative openings like the Petroff and Ruy Lopez, the Sveshnikov almost always leads to extremely complicated and razor-sharp middlegame positions. It is therefore no wonder that the Sveshnikov has found a place in the repertoires of adventurous world class grandmasters like Veselin Topalov, Teimour Radjabov and Alexei Shirov. If you are not in for any compromises, than you will definitely like the Sveshnikov! And if you like the Sveshnikov, you cannot afford to miss this book!

*Explorer a dynamic and sharp reply to 1.e4
*Covers all the anti-lines
*Play the same varations as world class players

International Master John Cox lives in the UK and is a often seen participant in the international chess circuit. He is a former Junior Champion of Engeland and an established writer for Everyman Chess.
