  1. CLEARANCE - Sicilian Defense 4: Gurgenidze

    CLEARANCE - Sicilian Defense 4: Gurgenidze

    Regular Price: $9.95

    Analysis on 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.c4 Nf6 6.Nc3 Nxd4 7.Qxd4 d6. This critical line of the Maroczy Bind is examined thoroughly. Learn More
  2. Sicilian ...e6 and ...d6 Systems

    Sicilian ...e6 and ...d6 Systems

    $14.95
    The variations of the Sicilian in which Black sets up a pawn centre with ...e6 and ...d6 have been popularized by such fighting players as Kasparov and Andersson. The play can become extremely sharp and many lines have been analyzed to move 20. This comprehensive work provides everything the modern tournament player needs to know about the Scheveningen and only a Grandmaster of the calibre of Kasparov can provide the strategy explanation necessary for an opening of this complexity. Learn More
  3. CLEARANCE - Beating the Sicilian Defense Chameleon Variation

    CLEARANCE - Beating the Sicilian Defense Chameleon Variation

    Regular Price: $13.95

    Special Price $3.00

    The title is to make it strong and clear it is written from the White side. You do not have to wade through page after page, suggestion after suggestion, to find the best White continuations. The analysis will show you how to get an advantage with White by getting you through the opening against all Black variations. White plays 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 followed by 3.Ne2, with the flexible option to break through with d4 if desired. Learn More
  4. CLEARANCE - 2. c3 vs the Sicilian and the Smith Morra Gambit

    CLEARANCE - 2. c3 vs the Sicilian and the Smith Morra Gambit

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    Part One:1.e4 c5 2.c3 has gained a wide following through the years. White enjoys the central space advantage conferred by a classical pawn center. With rapid piece development, White will get the advantage against anything Black can play. Part Two: 1.e4 c5 2.d4 exd4 3.c3 and Black declines with 3..Nf6, or 3..d3, or 3..d5. We show you how one system transposes into another and when it can't. In all cases, White will obtain promising vistas for dynamic play. Learn More
  5. CLEARANCE - New Sicilian Gambits

    CLEARANCE - New Sicilian Gambits

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    GM Soltis: ''If white gets to attack in the Sicilian Defense anyway, why should he offer a pawn or two for the privilege? The answer is that black gets to counterplay in the Sicilian and his counterplay is usually as good as white's. That, in fact, is what makes the Sicilian popular. There are plenty of familiar Sicilian gambits(like the Smith Morra and Wing, which this book doesn't even cover). But in the last few years, a number of new ideas arising out of positional variations, have been discovered and found to pack a wallop for white''. Here are six new white gambits against the Sicilian that the reader will have to attempt to destroy black! Learn More
  6. CLEARANCE - Beating the Sicilian Defense with the Short-Nunn Attack

    CLEARANCE - Beating the Sicilian Defense with the Short-Nunn Attack

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    Wanted: Opening system needed to combat the most popular defense to 1.e4. Must be sound, flexible, and aggressive. Experience against all Black formations essential. GM's Short and Nunn came forward in the late 1980's and early 1990's to give us one catch-all system. First it was proven successful against one Black setup, and then against another and another. Its successes were registered at the highest levels. Fischer played it against Spassky in the 1992 return match! Still the most popular system against the Najdorf today. Learn More

The games were chosen for their sparkling quality and emphasis on tactics as well as their theoretical importance and constitute a manual of typical tactics in the Sicilian. Dr. Minev, an internationally known opening theoretician, also shows the reader how to do the original work necessary to build a successful modern opening repertoire. A must for those who love sharp tactical chess. Learn More
  10. CLEARANCE - Grand Prix Attack

    CLEARANCE - Grand Prix Attack

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

    When faced with the Sicilian Defense, you have to make the choice to either wade through a maze of variations in the main line or diverge early into a relatively lesser known system. The early advance of white's f-pawn fits this objective perfectly. White gains more space in the center and kingside with 2.f4, forming the basis for lasting pressure and often leading to violent attacks against the black kingside. After 1.e4 c5 2.f4, this variation fell out of fashion int he early 90's due to 2..d5. But take heart! Smith and Hall show that this variation still has some venom! Learn More
  11. CLEARANCE - The Fischer Attack in the Najdorf

    CLEARANCE - The Fischer Attack in the Najdorf

    Regular Price: $8.95

    Special Price $2.00

  13. The Complete Najdorf 6. Bg5

    The Complete Najdorf 6. Bg5

    $26.95
    The Najdorf Sicilian (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6) is the most important, popular, and talked about opening in chess. Its name is synonymous with such luminaries as Tal, Fischer, and Kasparov. Learn More
  14. Accelerated Dragons

    Accelerated Dragons

    $19.95
    Many players are attracted to the Dragon Sicilian, but are put off by the fierce mating attacks that White can launch. In the Accelerated Dragon, Black aims for an improved version, saving a move with his queen's pawn. If White tries to ignore the difference, Black's instant detonation of the centre will come as an unwelcome cold shower! The authors show that White's main reply, the Maroczy Bind, is not so fearsome as was once thought Black has many ways to break out, while quite often it is possible to manoeuvre around White's 'binding pawns' and show that they imprison White's pieces as much as they do Black's. Learn More
  15. The Sicilian Sozin

    The Sicilian Sozin

    $14.95
    This book presents in detail the theory of the Sozin in all its forms, including the razor-sharp Velimirovic Attack. Learn More

  17. The Sveshnikov Sicilian

    The Sveshnikov Sicilian

    $21.95
    The Sveshnikov Sicilian is arguably the most dynamic line in the whole of the Sicilian Defence.

Black is not content to equalize but from the very startsets out to wrest the advantage from his opponent's hands. Learn More

    EBOOK - Taming the Sicilian

    $19.95

    Out of stock

    The Sicilian Defence is Black's most ambitious and popular defence to 1 e4. Finding a suitable weapon against it has taxed many a grandmaster's brain. Should White dive into the labyrinth of mountainous theory and complications, in which the player who knows the latest theoretical wrinkle is likely to prevail, or should White abstain and instead head for the more tranquil waters of the various Anti-Sicilians on offer? Perhaps the answer lies somewhere in-between! Learn More

    CLEARANCE - A Complete Guide to the Grivas Sicilian

    Regular Price: $23.95

    Special Price $7.00

    This book is in every way a definitive guide: Efstratios Grivas provides the inside story on a variation of the Sicilian Defence that he has worked for more than 20 years to perfect, and which rightly bears his name. The Grivas Sicilian (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Qb6) has proved itself sound and reliable in practice, but is also far less well investigated than most Sicilian systems. Learn More

    The Closed Sicilian is an ideal weapon for players who wish for an aggressive way to attack the Sicilian but have neither the time nor the inclination to learn the seemingly endless mountains of opening theory associated with Open Sicilians. In the Closed Sicilian an awareness of the typical themes is far more important than memorising variations.

    $26.95
    The Accelerated Dragon is a dynamic choice for Black and arguably the most natural way to play the Sicilian Defence: Black develops rapidly and chooses the most active squares to place his or her pieces.

  34. Fighting the Anti-Sicilians

    Fighting the Anti-Sicilians

    $26.95
    The Sicilian Defence is by far Black's most popular answer to 1. e4 at all levels of chess. The reason for this is easy to understand: from the very first move Black unbalances the position and can play for a win without needing to take unjustified risks. This is particularly the case with the Open Sicilian, where Black can take comfort from the knowledge that his superior pawn structure ensures control of the centre and excellent long-term chances.
