Product Description

Name one killer Sicilian opening that instills FEAR into the heart of every 1.e4 player.

The Sveshnikov Variation.

One of the most active and dynamic of all Sicilian lines – employed by club players and World Champs alike to win games as Black.

Yes, Black does end up with a backward pawn but also with a plethora of winning plans. No matter wherever White moves that knight… to b5… to f5… or back to b3/f3, White will always have a tough position to play.

Yes, you do accept a weak square at d5 but the center is pretty stable – regardless of Black’s thematic f-pawn pushes. No more confusion as in the Najdorf or the Scheveningen.

You have gained space and developed the c6-knight to a natural square.

Sounds like a dream Sicilian opening, right?

To make that dream come true, IM Marcin Sieciechowicz is here with his latest offering, Sicilian Defense: Sveshnikov Variation.

From 6…h6 to 7.Nd5 to 9.Bf6, IM Sieciechowicz focuses on White’s responses and Black responses to them in return… along with 4 chapters on “rare moves”.

Here is what you’ll learn:

  • Logic-defying positions. Can you imagine that Black is actually better in this position? In fact, 17.a4 was a dubious move that probably worsens White’s position. Let IM Sieciechowicz cut through the mystery here and tell you what’s what.

  • In-between moves. Did Black instantly capture the rook? No. In this game against Judit Polgar as White, Kasparov showed the power of in-between moves with a silent piece maneuver. What did he play? Check the Chapter 1 video.

Sicilian Defense Sveshnikov Variation

  • Positional battle. Even a simple pawn push can turn out to be a positional mistake at times. Look at that innocent b5 move. Let IM Sieciechowicz tell you why this made White’s position even harder than it should be.
