A modern approach against the Sicilian Vol.2: The Moscow Variation

Do you not have time to follow the latest and most aggressive developments in the main lines of the Sicilian but still want to be able to obtain comfortable positions with White? With its solid but venomous main and sidelines, the Moscow Variation is a perfect choice.

This DVD will show you dangerous new sidelines that are ideal for combatting the Sicilian after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+, with your author giving you the positional ideas behind less well-trodden Sicilian paths that avoid the main and winding main lines after 3.d4. The most critical sidelines are peppered with novelties, which are likely to surprise your opponent. With comprehensive explanations of the positional ideas, this DVD is suitable for everyone from beginners who are just starting out, right through to GMs who want to take advantage of the host of novelties in the dangerous but not very well-known sidelines. You can then test both your theoretical knowledge as well as look at typical ideas in model games in the numerous accompanying interactive videos. Lines covered: • 3..Nc6 • 3..Bd7 4.Bxd7+ Qxd7 (Main line & sidelines) 5.c4 & 5.0-0 • 3..Nd7

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.
