New: Luis Engel - Uncovering the Anti-Sicilians!

by ChessBase Shop - 17/03/2024

Who hasn’t experienced it? You’re prepared for an exciting game in the open Najdorf Sicilian, and suddenly your opponent puts one of the seemingly countless minor variations on the board - in order to avoid the main Najdorf variations. Should you be frustrated? Absolutely not! Luis Engel uncovers the Anti-Sicilians, so you can prepare well. This Fritztrainer offers you the perfect addition to any Sicilian or Najdorf repertoire, and covers all the minor variations that White has tried to avoid the open Sicilian. If you already have the two Fritztrainers covering the Sicilian Najdorf after 5... a6, you have a complete and seamless grandmaster repertoire against 1. e4 at your disposal! Photo: ChessBase

Uncovering the Anti-Sicilians! A dynamic grandmaster repertoire against 1.e4 - Vol.3

By Luis Engel

We start our journey through the Anti-Sicilians with the important and very popular 2nd move alternatives, first and foremost the Grand Prix Attack (2. Nc3) and the Alapin Variation (2. c3), but also all other 2nd move minor variations that White has tried - even if you don’t play the Najdorf when you play the Sicilian, this course is suitable for your repertoire!

After the main move 2. Nf3 d6, we continue with the alternatives to 3. d4, in particular the extremely popular move 3. Bb5+. The variations 3. d4 cxd4 4. Qxd4!? and the move 5. f3 (which is popular as a surprise weapon) are also covered and, of course, all the other rare variations that White has played on the way to the main variation - nothing can trouble you until you reach the starting position of the Najdorf after 5... a6!
