The Sicilian is the most popular opening against 1.e4 because it is theoretically sound but offers Black double-edged play at the same time. Whilst you must know how to handle the main line (2. Nf3 and 3.d4), sidelines are also very important. In this video series I give a strong and practical Black repertoire against these sidelines such as the Bb5 Sicilian, the Grand Prix Attack, the Alapin and many more, from my years of experience playing the Sicilian.

1.e4 c5 are the moves which define the Sicilian Defence. Black fights for the d4-square, but unlike with the double move of the black e-pawn the symmetry is immediately destroyed and Black is indicating that he is not simply aiming to achieve equality. Then things can continue in quite different directions. 2.Nf3 followed by 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 leads to the Open Sicilian. But before that, Black has the option of laying down the direction in which the opening will go, according to whether he plays 2...d6, 2...e6 or 2...Nc6. But nowadays systems in which White does without an early d4 are also very popular.=> Más productos: Siciliana
The repertoire is designed for players who play 2...Nc6 against the main line Sicilian. This video series is the perfect complement to my Kalashnikov video series in order to give Black a complete repertoire against 1...e4, but it will also complement other Sicilian lines. For example if you play the Sveshnikov Sicilian (Magnus Carlsen’s recent choice), Accelerated Dragon, Grivas Sicilian, Taimanov Variation, Flohr Variation or Loewenthal Variation against the main line Sicilian, then this video series can be used to cover all of the important sidelines that White might play. There are also many useful chapters for players who play other Sicilian variations (not involving an early Nc6). I find that sidelines are more common than the main line at club level, and possibly at top level too, so having a strong repertoire against these sidelines is essential for any Sicilian player.
