tra central pawn. This leads to very sharp middlegames.
The main goal in choosing lines was to reach positions with well-defined plans for both sides, then illustrate how to handle a typical middlegame in each variation through the use of well-chosen instructive games.
The choices against the most frequently seen Sicilians are:
The Najdorf: 6.h3
The Kan and Taimanov: 6.g3
The Classical: 6.Bc4
The Dragon: 9.O-O-O
The Accelerated Dragon: Maróczy Bind
The Sveshnikov: 9.Nd5
The purpose of this book is not only to provide a complete repertoire for the White side of the Open Sicilian, but also to ingrain a number of thematic positional and tactical motifs as well.
The authors provide memory markers, reminders of the ideas and motifs, at the end of each chapter, as well as lots of exercises to test your understanding.
