The well-known grandmaster and theoretician Evgeny Sveshnikov has used the Closed Variation (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5) more than 150 times in tournament play with a score of more than 70%.
Many theoretically important games have been excluded by the author from 'official' chess databases, and here they are exclusively published for the first time.
The present Volume 2 (Master Course) contains the following main chapters:
- 61 theoretically important games for independent analysis
- Encyclopaedia of variations
- Summary of the 3.e5 system
- Games for further study
- Latest theoretical developments.
This two-volume work is intended for a broad range of chess enthusiasts. The author guarantees that anyone making a thorough study of the available material can expect an improvement in his playing strength in this system of approximately 200 Elo points.
