No opening in recent times has captured the imagination of the chess public more than the Sicilian Sveshnikov. Initially popularized in the 1970s, the Sveshnikov has exploded onto the chess scene at the highest levels and is now regarded by many experts as one of Black's most promising answers to 1 e4. One of its major attractions is that more often than not the opening leads to incredibly sharp and complex play. In such situations both sides must play with extreme accuracy just to stay on the board as a single slip may lead to disaster!

John Cox is an International Master and a former British Junior Champion. His initial works for Everyman Chess, Starting Out: Alekhine's Defence and Dealing with d4 Deviations, have already established him as a writer with impressive credentials. He is resident in the UK.
