The Sicilian Defence is Black¿s most ambitious and popular defence to 1 e4. Finding a suitable weapon against it has taxed many a grandmaster¿s brain. Should White dive into the labyrinth of mountainous theory and complications, in which the player who knows the latest theoretical wrinkle is likely to prevail, or should White abstain and instead head for the more tranquil waters of the various Anti-Sicilians on offer? Perhaps the answer lies somewhere in-between! In this book, Grandmaster Nigel Davies tackles the Open Sicilian head on, but still develops an easy-to-use system for White based upon the fianchetto of the king¿s bishop. He arms the readers with an impressive repertoire which enables them to face the Sicilian Defence with renewed confidence.
