A modern approach against the Sicilian Vol.1: The Rossolimo 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 Rossolimo Variation is just the ticket.

This DVD will show you dangerous new sidelines that are ideal for combatting the Sicilian after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 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..Qb6 • 3..Qc7 • 3..Nd4 • 3..e6 • 3..g6 (Main line played during the World Championship Match 2018)

Today the Rossolimo Variation is the most important option for White after 2...Nc6 if he does not want to open up the centre at once with 3.d4. Born in Kiev, Nicolas Rossolimo (1910–1975) who went on to live in France and in the USA, played the move successfully in various tournaments from the late 1940s on. In recent years, 3.Bb5 was above all popular as an anti-Sveshnikov weapon. If White is inclined to play 3.d4, he has no good way to deviate from the move order of the Sveshnikov. This led to those players who did not like going in for sharp and long theoretical variations giving their preference to 3.Bb5.
