Product Details

No opening in recent times has captured the imagination of the chess public more than the Sicilian Sveshnikov. Initially popularized in the 1970s, the Sveshnikov has exploded onto the chess scene at the highest levels and is now regarded by many experts as one of Black's most promising answers to 1e4. One of its major attractions is that more often than not the opening leads to incredibly sharp and complex play. In such situations both sides must play with extreme accuracy just to stay on the board since a single slip may lead to disaster! This uncompromising and modern approach with the black pieces has found favor with many of today's leading Grandmasters, including Vladimir Kramnik and Peter Leko, while Garry Kasparov also began playing it toward the end of his career.

This book is a further addition to Everyman's best-selling Starting Out series, which has been acclaimed for its original approach to tackling chess openings. John Cox revisits the fundamentals of the Sveshnikov, elaborating on the crucial early moves and ideas for both sides in a way that is often neglected in other texts. The reader is helped throughout with a plethora of notes, tips and warnings highlighting the vital characteristics of the Sicilian Sveshnikov and of opening play in general. Starting Out: Sicilian Sveshnikov is a perfect guide for improving players and those new to this opening.

Author John Cox is an International Master and a former British Junior Champion. His previous works for Everyman Chess, which include Starting Out: 1 d4! and Dealing with d4 Deviations, have already established him as a writer with impressive credentials.
