The easiest sicilian (for players > 1850)

Today we present a brand new repertoire book for Black based on the Sveshnikov. The Easiest Sicilian by GM's Kolev & Nedev is aimed at players > 1850 elo.

It proposes a sound yet aggressive repertoire after 1.e4 c5, 2.Nf3 Nc6 and covers the Rossolimo, the Sveshnikov as well as some rare lines.

The authors counter some sneaky new ideas of Anand and Khalifman, and aim at getting winning chances for Black, or at least positions in which White must take considerable risks if he aspires to even a slight advantage.

The presentation is according to the trademark structure which brought us the enormously successful The Safest Sicilian and The Sharpest Sicilian. So each system is presented in 3 phases:

Quick repertoire (vital info to start playing), Step by Step (the essence of all variations, branch by branch) and Complete Games (practical examples & back up lines). Black is here in perfect shape.
