The book number eight from the series "Opening for White according to Anand - 1.e4" started analyzing the Sicilian Defence - the most popular opening of the second half of the 20th century and naturally in the 21st century as well.
It is now even difficult to imagine that the great player Alekhine considered that opening to be a bit dubious. Theory and practice have developed tremendously since then. Naturally, Robert James Fischer and Garry Kasparov contributed greatly to the increased popularity of the Sicilian Defence, but their efforts were mostly concentrated on the Najdorf system.
It is something like an opening inside another opening and we will analyze it thoroughly in one of our subsequent volumes.
