    The Sniper

    $26.95
    The Sniper is a dynamic and universal opening weapon for Black which can be used against all mainline openings.

It's also rich in move-order possibilities, with potential transpositions into Sicilian, King's Indian or Benko-type positions. Learn More

    SHOPWORN - Sveshnikov vs. the Anti-Sicilians

    Regular Price: $28.95

    Special Price $11.00

    The Sicilian Defence is Black’s most popular reply to 1.e4. Most Black players hope for an Open Sicilian, seeking unbalanced positions and opportunities to play for a win. No wonder that in roughly one-third of the games White does not play 2.Nf3 and chooses one of numerous ‘Anti-Sicilian’ lines. Ranging from primitive and aggressive to respected but tedious, these Anti-Sicilians have one thing in common: they all cross Black's plans and steer for territories where it is easy to get ambushed. Evgeny Sveshnikov offers help. The world-famous Sicilian expert tackles these annoying lines one by one. With great ingenuity he presents a watertight repertoire that consists of practical and effective opening ideas. Learn More

Play 2...Bf5! against either 2.c4 or 2.Nf3 will surprise your opponent and is also a great way to support your development, because the bishop takes control of the important square e4. Learn More
