According to the great Vishy Anand, the Sicilian Defense is one of the two openings that serious chess players must learn if they want to be successful (the other being the Ruy Lopez/Spanish Opening).
However, getting a refined understanding of the imbalances in this double-edged opening, and using that knowledge to win, can take many years of hard work. It’s a notoriously difficult chess opening, one that can bounce back and leave you with a losing position if you go off-theory, or if you aren’t aware of the general ideas and plans you need to try and implement.
But don’t let that put you off – the Sicilian Defense is the most popular and best-scoring chess opening in response to White’s first move 1.e4, making it worth all your time and effort to learn. It’s guaranteed to get you a number of wins against even the toughest opposition.
that’s why having an experienced competitive International Master and highly respected coach like Valeri Lilov helps. Valeri is able to show you all the common mistakes club players make in the Sicilian, what the common ideas are, how to punish the opponent’s mistakes and what GMs do differently.
