SHOPWORN - Sicilian Attacks
Powerful Charges & Topical TacticsProduct Code: SWB0093NIC
Against most Sicilian variations, White's sharpest and often best weapon is queenside castling, a strategy that frequently leads to spectacular fireworks. Regrettably, these powerful charges have never been properly categorized. Until this book.
In Sicilian Attacks, Grandmaster Yuri Yakovich, who has more than thirty years of experience with complex Sicilian systems, analyses the Najdorf, the Scheveningen, the Dragon, the Taimanov and the Richter-Rauzer Variations.
He teaches how their pawn structures dictate typical methods of attack for White, but he also gives the best defending techniques for Black.
This book provides cutting-edge analysis full of original ideas, but also contains useful verbal guidelines to help you to recognize typical Sicilian plans and counterplans. An abundance of highly instructive games illustrate the various strategic and tactical themes. At the end of each chapter you will find practical conclusions.
Yuri Yakovich is a highly esteemed chess trainer and a well known grandmaster from Samara, Russia, who has won a number of strong tournaments such as San Antonio 1999. Yakovich has written two opening books: 'The Complete Sveshnikov Sicilian' and 'Play the 4 f3 Nimzo-Indian'.
