    Sicilian Defense:Grand Prix Attack
    Catalog Code: B0226IS

    The f4 Sicilian has become popular and feared because it avoids the frightening amount of knowledge required to play Open Sicilians. It is often not treated with the respect it deserves. The strategic aims are quite simple to understand: CHECKMATE. The first edition was written when the Grand Prix Attack was just becoming noticed by strong chess players. Now there are over 20,000 examples in the databases. Nevertheless, the opening remains based more on the ideas explained by authors Hodgson and Day than on “theory”.

This training method resembles live play far more realistically than solving puzzles, because each move has to be analyzed with respect to tactical possibilities—whether they exist or not.
