Are you bored of playing the same old openings time and time again? Fed up with constantly having to keep up with modern chess theory? Or perhaps you simply wish to play something new and exciting, but cannot decide between the numerous choices available? Don’t despair – help is on hand!’
The Sicilian Defense is Black’s most popular response to 1.e4 and with good reason. Black immediately creates an asymmetrical position and lets White know he is playing for a win!
There are times when you need to add more of a spark to your opening repertoire. Starting afresh with a new variation or opening isn’t necessary when you have new Dangerous Weapons you can use.
Rattle your opponent and drag him out of his comfort zone with a new and exciting variation. Even the tactical and counter-attacking Sicilian Defense can become more fearsome with the addition of Dangerous Weapons.
In Dangerous Weapons: The Sicilian, John Emms and Richard Palliser team up to investigate by far the most popular and widely-played Sicilian Defense, but in a revolutionary way.
They concentrate on fresh or little-explored variations of the open Sicilian Defense and also selecting a wealth of ideas and options for both colors.
Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded. And they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponent off balance.
Whether playing White or Black, a study of this book will leave you assured and fully armed.
Dangerous Weapons is a brand-new series of opening books that provide the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire.
