      Stomping the Sicilian Defense - EMPIRE CHESS

      Our Price: $29.95
      In this DVD series, we will review seven carefully chosen games in which white mounted a successful attack against the Sicilian Defense.

While opening theory is not the main subject of the series, the seven games come from many different Sicilians, most prominently the Dragon, Taimanov, Sveshnikov, and Najdorf variations. All of the chosen games are discussed in their entirety, and all of them were played by world class players. It is my hope that this series will give the aspiring 1. e4 player knowledge, experience, and inspiration in tackling the most complex of all opening systems. Learn More
