Nigel Davies

For players who lack either the time or inclination to study reams of opening theory, the Closed Sicilian (1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 followed by 3.g3) is an excellent choice. The two great exponents of this method of play were World Champions Vassily Smyslov and Boris Spassky. These days it's the top English Grandmasters Michael Adams and Nigel Short who are its leading advocates.

During the early stages White quietly builds up strong central fortifications and gains space on the kingside. Despite the quiet appearance of this plan, in the middle game this can lead to a ferocious onslaught against Black's king. On this DVD Nigel Davies introduces the viewer to the different strategies and variations through a series of instructive games. His presentation caters mainly for players who wish to play White, but he also points out the best methods of defence for Black.

Nigel Davies has been an International Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Rapidplay and U21 Champion. He has had considerable experience in teaching club level players.
