    CLEARANCE - Sicilian Defence
    Lines with P-KB4
    Catalog Code: CB0550RB

    There are two Sicilian lines where White plays an early P-KB4; 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 P-KB4 which is probably inferior to the system popularised by the Dutch player Vinken - 1 P-K4 P-QB4 2 N-QB3 and 3 P-KB4. This latter system occupies most of this book. The author demonstrates the Vinken System to be a viable alternative for White in which the first player strives for a King-side attack which can so easily come off.

Black plays immediately for the initiative which makes the variation very suitable for club play. The second half of this book consists of a survey of some of the latest ideas in the Najdorf, Richter-Rauzer and Sozin variations of the Sicilian
