ChessVibes reviews Experts on the anti-Sicilian and Bologan’s The Rossolimo Sicilian; ChessCafe on The Cutting Edge 2

 

Arne Moll at the ChessVibes site reviewed two books in one column: our Experts on the anti-Sicilian and Bologan’s The Rossolimo Sicilian. The comparison went in our favour with quotes such as: “If you want to have fun with the Anti-Sicilians, The Rossolimo Variation and Experts on the Anti-Sicilian provide excellent study material. My own preference is for the latter – it seems more objective, more diverse and more up to date.”

It’s a long review and well worth reading in full. Give it a scan and see if you disagree with Arne. Is Bologan too harshly dealt with for continually praising his old coach? Is our book excessively praised? Why am I asking stupid questions?

 

On the subject of reviews, in his Checkpoint column at ChessCafe, Carsten Hansen reviewed The Cutting Edge 2: Sicilian Najdorf 6.Be3. Once again, the whole review is worth reading. The quick summary is 5 stars out of a possible 6: Carsten loved the chess but objected to some of the language.

    Hey,

    I recently purchased the ‘Experts on the Anti-Sicilian’ book, I was pretty amazed how fast I got through it, it was much thicker than the ‘Experts vs the Sicilian’ which I’m sorry to say I haven’t finished yet – haha!! Great books though… I guess it’s time to find the comparisons between Gawain Jones new ‘how to beat the Sicilian defence – an anti sicilian repertoire for white’ to see where the ‘?!’ become the ‘!?’…

    Finally, please check out my blog:
