Book DescriptionThe Closed variation (1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. g3) has always been regarded as an interesting and dynamic way to meet the aggressive Sicilian Defense. At the highest level, former World Champions Boris Spassky and Vassily Smyslov have employed it on a regular basis, while Vassily Ivanchuk has also used it as a surprise weapon. The Closed Sicilian is ideally suited to club and tournament players, as it does not require the memorising of reams of complicated variations; an understanding of typical themes being more important than theoretical knowledge. In this book, Grandmaster Daniel King explains the strategy and tactics of this popular opening. Through the use of model games for both sides, the author provides a thorough grounding in the key ideas.
