The third volume of the Grandmaster Repertoire – 1.e4 series tackles many challenging Sicilian lines – the Dragons, Rauzer, Sveshnikov and Kalashnikov. Building on a foundation of critical main lines, Negi reveals an arsenal of new ideas, making this an essential addition to the library of every ambitious player.
Parimarjan Negi is a former child prodigy who is the second-youngest player of all time to obtain the Grandmaster title. He was Asian Champion in 2012, and played on Board 1 for the Indian team which won bronze medals at the Tromsø 2014 Olympiad.
Reviews of the previous volumes:
“It’s so good! It shows everything that you need to produce world-class preparation... Negi’s book is absolutely stunning. My jaw kept dropping at the attacking ideas that Negi exposes in this book.”
GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess
“Every now and then, every once-in-a-FIDE-cycle, a book comes along that seriously impresses me. And recently, I received another of these rare, pleasant shocks. Indian GM Parimarjan Negi’s first book of his 1.e4 repertoire series is a real stand-out, an excellent piece of chess authorship.”
GM David Smerdon
