    The Sicilian Sveshnikov - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: B0443EM

    The Sveshnikov is a very important variation of the Sicilian Defence. One of the Sveshnikov's main attractions is that it provides a battleground for one of the key conflicts in chess: structure versus activity. Black sacrifices structure in return for active piece play – a dynamic that regularly leads to sharp and complex positions, rich in strategic and tactical possibilities. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites the reader to join him in studying the Sveshnikov Sicilian.
