ABC of the Sicilian Dragon - Andrew MartinProduct Code: WIN0135CB
Over 4 hours of instruction from legendary British Author
International Master Andrew Martin
Product DescriptionThe Sicilian Dragon is one of the most extensively analyzed openings in the entire realm of chess theory. That is because it is one of Black's best counterattacking options against 1 e4 and therefore very attractive. After 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 g6! Black develops aggressively and rapidly, has clear intentions on the half-open c file and the long diagonal. He retains options of levering open the queenside with the help of ...b7-b5 and ...a7-a5. Black keeps the inherently flexible Sicilian pawn-structure intact.
Yet.....can it really be sensible for the club player to wade in these dangerous waters? Will the game not reduce to a battle of memory, particularly in the Yugoslav attack? Not everyone has the talent of Kasparov, Carlsen, Topalov or Golubev. In the ABC of the Sicilian Dragon, Andrew Martin constructs a battle plan for the average player, which relies less on theory and more on understanding. He argues conclusively that this excellent opening CAN be used by every player and give fine results. Video running time: 4 h 10 min.
Martin is a professional chess teacher and coach in England (currently teaching at eight schools) and is the chief coach of the English national Junior squad (ages 8-18). He was coach to four World Youth Champions and a host of English national junior champions - clearly Martin understands how to communicate chess knowledge to his students with great success and outstanding results!
