Finally: Shirov on the Sveshnikov

The Sveshnikov Variation of the Sicilian Defence is quite popular with both top grandmasters and club players, and it is easy to see why.

It is one of the most promising replies to 1.e4, often giving rise to sharp and complex positions which require precise and inventive play from both sides.

That is probably why Alexei Shirov has included it into his repertoire with both White and Black. Shirov loves and knows the mutual tricks and traps.

We just received from our friends at ChessBase in Hamburg a new 4-hour DVD,
a masterful course on the Sveshnikov by Shirov himself.

The genius from Latvia presents and explains his best Sveshnikov games, from his first successes in 1992 to his latest achievements in the year 2007.

You will see the typical opening plans for both sides, receive explanations on strategy and tactics in the middlegame, and learn how to convert obtained advantages in the endgame - and all this in a most entertaining way.

Sicilians are ever very interesting! I had some success with this line. Specially because it is sharp...
