The Sveshnikov variation of the Sicilian Defense leads to dynamic positions with free piece play and provides enterprising players with the type of active game on which they can thrive. It became fashionable in the 1970s under the influence of Evgeny Sveshnikov and other grandmasters from Chelyabinsk, and has remained at the cutting edge of opening theory ever since. In recent years it has been a favorite of the exciting young stars Vladimir Kramnik and Alexei Shirov, and of the author himself, all of whom have introduced important new ideas. This book provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the Sveshnikov Sicilian available. It focuses on currently fashionable variations and provides club and tournament players with everything they need to know to play the opening with confidence as White or Black. Learn the secrets of the Sveshnikov from one of it foremost exponents! Mikhail Krasenkov is also author of The Open Spanish.
