Vassilios Kotronias & Semko SemkovSample pages (pdf)
This book presents a full repertoire against open Sicilians with 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6. It advocates the modern set-up with Bc1-e3 and Qd1-f3 against the Taimanov, an innovative treatment of the Keres Attack, 5.c4 against the Kan. The authors develop many new plans for White, relying on their chess instincts and original analysis.
The underlying logic of this work is simple: Attack when you can, squeeze when you cannot!
