                    [description] => The Sicilian Defense is the sharpest and most complicated opening system in chess. Luckily for all you 1. e4 players, there is an easy way to sidestep memorizing a billion different lines in the Sicilian Defense - you can play an early sideline like the c3 Sicilian and specialize in a narrow opening system.

The "Killer c3 Sicilian" features high-quality analysis by Irish International Master Sam Collins who brings a very fresh and young perspective to this chess DVD. With over 4.5 hours of expert instruction, you will feel overwhelmingly confident against opponents who love to bust out the complicated Sicilian Defense.

The c3 Sicilian, also known as the Alapin Variation, is an extremely effective weapon that is suitable for chess players of all strengths. Many of the world´s leading grandmasters such as Michael Adams and Sergei Tiviakov frequently employ the c3 Sicilian - proving the validity of this opening at the highest level.

Former Irish Champion IM Sam Collins makes this chess DVD unforgettable as he explains the fundamental principles and ideas behind this fascinating opening with a killer sense of humor and presentation.
