    Stomping the Sicilian Defense - EMPIRE CHESS

    $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.
