NEW: Erwin l’Ami: The Shining Sveshnikov Sicilian

by ChessBase Shop - 05/07/2019

Erwin l'Ami's latest video series features a weapon recently brought to the fore by World Champion Magnus Carlsen, who used it extensively in his 2018 World Championship match in London. L'Ami is an active trainer and second of super-GM Anish Giri, and an experienced theoretician. Who better to deconstruct this topical and powerful defence for Black?

Always wanted to play like a World Champion? Search no further! With Magnus Carlsen using the Sveshnikov variation as his weapon of choice in the World Championship match against Fabiano Caruana, this DVD could not be better timed. The Dutch grandmaster Erwin L‘Ami (former second of Veselin Topalov and currently seconding Anish Giri), guides you through this dynamic opening variation. The DVD offers a complete overview of this fascinating opening that has inspired generations of chess players! The basic Sveshnikov position is reached after the moves 1.e4 c5 2.♘f3 ♞c6 3.d4 cxd4 4.♘xd4 ♞f6 5.♘c3 e5.
