How to Beat the Sicilian Defence : An Anti-Sicilian Repertoire for White

£8.99

Product description

This book is in excellent condition. The cover has only a hint of wear at the edges, and internally the book is clean, tight and unmarked with almost no sign of use.

Grandmaster Gawain Jones presents an Anti-Sicilian repertoire for White based on lines he has successfully employed at grandmaster level. Variations covered include the highly popular King's Indian Attack and various Bb5 systems.

"The Sicilian Defence is by far the most popular chess opening. If you play 1 e4 as White, on average you are likely to meet the Sicilian in virtually every other game! You need to be prepared to face the Sicilian at all times, and a ready-to-use repertoire against it is an indispensible weapon.

In this book, Gawain Jones confronts the challenge of meeting the Sicilian head on. He has constructed a comprehensive Anti-Sicilian repertoire for White, which is based on lines that are successfully employed at grandmaster level. These are sound, reliable options for White, but don't be fooled - they also contain more than a drop of poison. Variations covered include the highly popular King's Indian Attack, various Bb5 systems and weapons against Black's offbeat tries."
