Grandmaster Repertoire 6A - Beating the Anti-Sicilians (hardcover) by Vassilios Kotronias

€29.99 Qty:

The Sicilian Defence is the most combative way to meet 1.e4, but Black’s hopes of reaching his favourite Dragon, Najdorf or Sveshnikov are often quashed at an early stage. In Grandmaster Repertoire 6A – Beating the Anti-Sicilians, grandmaster Vassilios Kotronias provides full coverage against White’s many attempts to steer the game away from Open Sicilian territory. Beginning with sidelines on move 2, and extending all the way to variations tested at World Championship level, the author provides expert recommendations against all White’s sensible deviations (as well as some not-so-sensible ones!) with specific advice tailored for 2...d6, 2...e6 and 2...Nc6 players.

Be it tackling Wing and Morra Gambits head first, outmanoeuvring 2.c3 and Closed aficionados, bashing 3.Bb5† or ruining the Rossolimo, this book contains everything you need to make your opponents wish they had played 2.Nf3 and 3.d4!

Vassilios Kotronias is an experienced grandmaster and ten-time Greek Champion. A Sicilian expert, he is feared for his profound opening preparation.

ISBN  978-1-907982-64-4 -  504 pages - Published 9 December 2015

"As a reference book for game preparation I find it very successful."

IM Dirk Schuh, Rochade Europa

“Beating the Anti-Sicilians is a repertoire book for Black which is especially recommendable for correspondence chess players and for club players at a higher level. The repertoire provides Black with lines if White avoids the Open Sicilian. It not only covers proven lines but also unknown variations and novelties in several cases.”
