About The Dangerous Weapons: The Sicilian - Emms / Palliser

Are you bored of playing the same old openings time and time again? Fed up with constantly having to keep up with modern chess theory? Or perhaps you simply wish to play something new and exciting, but cannot decide between the numerous choices available? Don't despair, help is on hand! In Dangerous Weapons: The Sicilian, John Emms and Richard Palliser team up to investigate by far the most popular and widely-played chess opening, but in a revolutionary way. They concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations of the open Sicilian, selecting a wealth of ideas and options for both colors. Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded; they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponent off balance. Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you assured and fully-armed, and your opponents running for cover! Dangerous Weapons is a brand-new series of opening books that provide the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire.

  • I feel that these books are the most refreshing of recent opening products, and wonderful for anyone wishing to get off of the main theoretical paths. - John Watson: TWIC
  • Whoever absorbs this wealth of original analysis can expect exciting games and some quick wins, with both colors! - James Vigus: British Chess Magazine
  • I have to admit that I find the DANGEROUS WEAPONS series to be fascinating. Not only does it explore ideas for both white and black, not only does it update many well known lines, not only does it infuse them with energy (since everything looked at in this series is 'dangerous'), but it also offers up all sorts of fringe variations that one might have wrongly guessed were dubious. DANGEROUS WEAPONS: THE SICILIAN gives us many helpings of this kind of great stuff. - Jeremy Silman: jeremysilman.com
