“In order to understand an opening, you need to know the historical background and have a good feeling for the dynamics”, says the GM Dorian Rogozenco in the introduction to this video course. Based on 30 years of personal experience at high level, Rogozenco provides a complete guide for Black in the modern theory of the Sveshnikov Sicilian.
The Sveshnikov Sicilian regained popularity after the World Championship match 2018 between Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana, where the World Champion used the opening as one of his main weapons. The starting point of this video course is 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 e5. Rogozenco explains the ins and outs of the mainline and sidelines. The course consists of 12 parts, each of them having a video introduction and a database. In the video introduction the author explains some historical background of the variation, its strategic ideas, and gives clear recommendations for Black. In addition to the material in the video introductions, the included databases contain several important annotated games with all necessary theoretical details.
