About this title


The Classical Sicilian is a response to the Sicilian Defence. Black develops in a standard fashion, allowing White to attack violently or quietly, while retaining the famed Sicilian counterpunch.

From the Back Cover:

The Classical Sicilian is one of the most popular openings among top-class grandmasters as Black develops in straightforward and logical fashion. Whether White tries an immediate attack or chooses a quieter approach, Black retains the famed Sicilian counter-punch. The Classical is surprisingly neglected in chess literature; Grandmaster Yrjola finally reveals both the theory and concepts behind this well respected opening, making it accessible to players of all levels. This guide is written by a renowned Classical Sicilian expert, covers all of White's main replies and explains an opening played regularly by Anand, Kramnik and Shirov. (5 3/4 x 8 1/4, 128 pages, diagrams)
