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 popular King?s Indian Attack, various Bb5 systems and weapons against Black?s offbeat tries.
