About Starting Out: Closed Sicilian - Palliser.

The Closed Sicilian is an ideal weapon for players who wish for an aggressive way to attack the Sicilian but have neither the time nor the inclination to learn the seemingly endless reams of opening theory associated with Open Sicilians. In the Closed Sicilian an awareness of the typical themes is far more important than memorizing variations. White's play is logical and the basic strategies are simple to master, while the deliberate and slow burning attack on the black king appeals to many.

In Starting Out: Closed Sicilian, Richard Palliser examines this popular opening at a fundamental level, presenting the vital early moves and ideas for both sides and taking care to explain the reasoning behind them, something that is often neglected or taken for granted. As with previous works in the popular Everyman Chess Starting Out series, there are a plethora of notes, tips and warnings highlighting the vital characteristics of the Closed Sicilian and of opening play in general.

Author Richard Palliser is a young English International Master who is quickly carving out a reputation as a skilled and prolific chess writer. His previous works for include The Bb5 Sicilian and Tango! which provoked much positive interest from critics and chess public alike.
