    Closed Sicilian - Nigel Davies

    Product Code: WIN0145CB

    Description

    Over 4.5 hours of instruction from legendary British  
    Grandmaster Nigel Davies 


    Product Description

    For players who lack either the time or inclination to study reams of opening theory the Closed Sicilian (1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 followed by 3.g3) is an excellent choice. The two great exponents of this method of play were World Champions Vassily Smyslov and Boris Spassky. 

    These days it's the top English Grandmasters Michael Adams and Nigel Short who are its leading exponents. During the early stages White quietly builds strong central fortifications and gains space on the kingside. Despite the quiet appearance of this plan, in the middle game this can lead to a ferocious onslaught against Blacks king. 

    On this DVD Nigel Davies introduces the viewer to the different strategies and variations through a series of instructive games. His presentation caters mainly to players who wish to play White, but he also points out the best methods of defense for Black. This makes it essential viewing for players wishing to play either color. 

    Nigel Davies has been a Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Quickplay and U21 Champion. He had more than 30 years international tournament experience and is the author many other best-selling DVDs for ChessBase.
