New: How to slay the Sicilian Vol. 1-3 + Tactic Toolbox by Pruijssers and Zwirs

by ChessBase Shop - 13/06/2020

Do you struggle against the Sicilian? And would you like to play the Open Sicilian but shy away from it because you fear the many lines you might have to learn? Then this video is a must for you! Dutch Grandmaster Roeland Pruijssers and International Master Nico Zwirs created a complete repertoire against the Sicilian that is based on the Open Sicilian and that is easy to learn. They recommend the Maroczy set-up (e4-c4), the English Attack (Be3, f3 and Qd2) and setups with Be3/Qf3. Fighting the Sicilian with one of these three setups makes the Open Sicilian much more easy to play. Learn more about how to handle Sicilian in this three volume DVDs and a tactics toolbox DVD.
