The Complete Sveshnikov Sicilian - Yakovich
About the The Complete Sveshnikov Sicilian - Yakovich
Black accepts an apparently loose pawn-structure in return for a great deal of piece activity. Decades of experience have shown that it is far from easy for White to neutralize Black's active play, and the Sveshnikov is now firmly established as a favorite weapon for players who wish to win games as Black. Leading grandmasters who have relied on the Sveshnikov include John Nunn, Michal Krasenkow, Joel Leko and, most notably, BGN World Champion Vladimir Kramnik. In this book, one of the world's leading experts on the Sveshnikov explains how this tricky opening is played. Yakovich presents up-to-the-minute coverage of all the variations both sides need to know to handle the Sveshnikov successfully. The book also covers the variations of the Pelikan Sicilian into which White can direct the game if he prefers to avoid the Sveshnikov itself.
