Vassilios KotroniasView sample pages (pdf)
The Sicilian Sveshnikov (1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Nc6; 3.d4,cxd4; 4.Nxd4,Nf6; 5.Nc3,e5) is one of the most active and dynamic variations of the Sicilian, and has been used successfully by players of all abilities from club level through to world champions.
In Grandmaster Repertoire 18: The Sicilian Sveshnikov, opening connoisseur Vassilios Kotronias places this bold system under the microscope and provides a world-class repertoire for Black.
In 37 chapters he examines White's 6th move alternatives to Ndb5 and White's 7th move alternatives to Bg5 in the first 5 chapters before moving on to the most challenging lines with 7.Bg5. Each chapter includes in-depth analysis and the author's conclusions.
The book features a detailed variation index and table of contents.
Vassilios Kotronias is a nine-time Greek Champion and mainstay of the Greek national team, as both a player and a coach. He is feared for his profound opening preparation.
