Product Description


This series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.

Anyone who plays the Sicilian Defence as Black must be prepared to meet a whole host of options for White known as the Anti-Sicilians. These includes popular choices such as the c3-Sicilian, the Grand Prix Attack, the Closed Sicilian, the King’s Indian Attack and all Bb5 lines, as well as numerous gambits and tricky sidelines which can be very difficult to meet for the unwary player. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala examines the Anti-Sicilian lines and provides repertoire options for Black against all of them. Using illustrative games, he explains the positional and tactical ideas for both sides, highlights important move-order issues and provides answers to all the key questions. This book tells you everything you need to know about facing the Anti-Sicilians with Black.

  • Essential guidance and training in Anti-Sicilians
  • Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study

Cyrus Lakdawala is unquestionably one of the most prolific writers on the game today. The workhorse for Everyman Chess, he has has written close to 30 books for them in the past half a dozen years and shows no sign of slowing down. This sort of output understandably raises the question of whether the author is just going through the motions after after having written over 10,000(!) pages on the royal game. Fear not. The latest offering by the San Diego International Master , Anti-Sicilian (Everyman Chess 2016, www.everymanchess.com, 448 pages, figurine algebraic, $29.95), features the clear explanation and humor that are his trademarks.
